Billions of dollars of damage. Thousands of homes destroyed. Endless flooding. Islands leveled. Dozens of casualties.

The sheer scale of Harvey and Irma’s impact is only beginning to come into focus. But the human impact is, inarguably, the most important measure of the storms’ disruption and destruction. It will be long road to recovery for Texas, Louisiana, Florida, the Virgin Islands, St. Martin, and other locations devastated by the storms.

We’ve chronicled many of the ways that people are rising to the occasion, assisting, saving, and comforting each other in times of need. But we also want to give our readers the opportunity to send words of encouragement to those impacted by Harvey and Irma.

Below, we’ve created a form below where you can leave advice, words of empathy, lessons from dealing with previous disasters, or just kind wishes. The Post may use some of these messages for a later project.

For those of you who wish to take action beyond a note, here are ways to donate to Harvey victims and help those impacted by Irma.
