Apple CEO Tim Cook announced today that the company plans to make a donation to organizations in Western Europe to support flood relief efforts.
More than 125 people died in unprecedented floods in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands, which damaged roads, houses, bridges and other infrastructure. Another 1,300 people went missing, and several small villages were destroyed by flood waters. About 20,000 people were left without electricity or access to clean water due to flooding.
Apple often donates money during natural disasters and has donated several times to fund the California wildfire relief efforts. More recently, Apple made a donation to organizations in Texas to help them cope with the harsh winter.
