CNN has created a “Victims & Relief Desk” in an effort to help the stranded and missing from the hurricane’s aftermath.
“The segment, which airs regularly on CNN/U.S. with anchor Carol Lin, also highlights hurricane relief efforts,” this press release says.
“The creation of the desk helps CNN sort through hundreds of calls and e-mails to the network seeking help in connecting stranded and missing people with their loved ones.
