Apple will make a donation to help flood-affected Kentucky

For the past few days, the state of Kentucky in the United States has been facing terrible floods which have caused the death of 28 people, according to the governor. Parts of Kentucky saw up to 8 inches of rain in just 1 day, causing many residential areas to flood. Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, announced that the company will come to financially support this state which is going through difficult times, especially after several violent tornadoes that occurred less than a year ago.

United States President Joe Biden has also indicated that he will decree the state of natural disaster for Kentucky, which systematically releases federal reinforcements to bring aid to the inhabitants in difficulty and maintain security in the disaster areas.

This isn’t the first time Tim Cook and Apple’s board have made the decision to assist to an American State or a country victim of floods, hurricanes, forest fires… Apple does not hesitate to offer tens of millions of dollars for the relief and reconstruction of cities destroyed by natural disasters . We remember, for example, that the company did for australia 5 months ago after terrible floods or even at louisiana following Hurricane Ida.
