LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Disaster relief efforts are underway to help victims of hurricanes Harvey and Irma. The generosity of Americans is endless.

The Center for International Disaster Information said cash is better because donating goods into hurricane beaten areas may be impossible.

Here is a link to the GoFundMe campaign set up by The Direct Impact Fund with options on how to help victims.
