City officials said Sunday afternoon that 505 total evacuees came through Philadelphia International Airport on two aircraft Saturday.



Evacuees will have general medical evaluations and COVID-19 tests, as well as an opportunity for COVID vaccinations.

There are also physical and mental health support services available.

There are ways to help, which you can find here, but officials say do not drop donations at the airport.

"While the airport really appreciates all of the donations folks are trying to drop off, for security reasons, we are asking that you donate those material goods to the United States Coast Guard," Brown said.
