2,200 Puerto Rico and USVI hurricane evacuee households have come to New York City since Hurricanes Irma and Maria wrought destruction on the islands in September 2017. Since October 2017, NYDIS played a critical role at New York City Emergency Management’s (NYCEM) Hurricane Evacuee Service Center (HESC) in East Harlem, which operated for 71 days and served 2,082 households.
