A day after Hurricane Ida made landfall on the gulf shore of Louisiana, Apple CEO Tim Cook made a special announcement over Twitter.
Cook tweeted that he hoped that everyone down there is doing their best to stay safe from the store and that Apple will be making a donation for the rehabilitation of Louisiana.
Our thoughts are with everyone in Hurricane Ida’s path, especially those sheltering in Louisiana, and we’re grateful for the first responders who are helping keep communities safe. Apple will be donating to relief and recovery efforts on the ground.

Issues and national tragedies like these in the U.S. are now actually pretty common for Apple to donate to.
Previously, Apple has donated to the recovery efforts for California wildfires, LGBTQ+ resources, as well as the flooding in Western Europe and recovery efforts after the devastating earthquake in Haiti this year.
At this time, it is unclear how much money Apple will be donating to the cause.
