Tim Cook has confirmed that Apple will make a series of donations to support relief efforts after a series of tornadoes devastated parts of the southern and midwestern United States.
As often happens in major emergencies, Apple will provide financial assistance and other resources to relief and local populations, as CEO Tim Cook himself confirmed on.
“Our hearts are with all those affected by the devastating climate and tornadoes in the South and Midwest. Apple will donate to support relief efforts on the ground. “
Between Friday and Saturday, more than 30 tornadoes hit at least six US states, causing extensive damage in Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, Mississippi and Tennessee. In addition to the damage caused to buildings and things, the death toll has already exceeded 80 victims. One of the hardest hit was the Mayfield Consumer Products candle plant in Kentucky on Friday night, with around 110 people inside when the tornado struck, many of whom are still missing.
Apple has not indicated how much it will donate and what other activities it will carry out to support the rescuers.
