Ahead of the violent Hurricane Irma touching down and wreaking absolute havoc on the state of Florida, Kristen Bell assisted her Frozen co-star’s stranded Florida family find safety.Bell, who is in Florida for work and was unable to leave in time before the hurricane struck, decided to make the most of her time there by lending a helping hand where needed.

Last run to the store for #irma hurricane holdover prep while bracing down in orlando- we didn’t have the option to leave so here we are. Just doing our best and trying to stay positive but cautious, and trying to help those who need help prepping. Every person i passed today was assisting someone else- #neighborshelpingneighbors – it was beautiful to see. Sad that a hurricane has to bring out the best in everyone- but happy that the community will be holding hands through this. Im grateful to Gary and the team at @swandolphin in epcot for helping us feel safe while we get through this together.

Bell, who is currently in Florida for work and was unable to leave in time before the hurricane struck, decided to make the most of her time there as she lended a helping hand where needed. “We didn’t have the option to leave so here we are,” Bell captioned on Instagram earlier this week. “Just doing our best and trying to stay positive but cautious, and trying to help those who need help prepping.”

She also applauded the Swan Dolphin Disney resort for helping everyone feel safe.

The family of Josh Gad, who’s the voice behind Olaf in Frozen, was stranded in Florida and unable to evacuate the area in time. Then came Kristen Bell, who helped out her co-star and friend’s family in their time of need.

No joke. @IMKristenBell just literally saved my parents, my brothers and entire family from #HurricaineIrma – you are an angel. I adore you. pic.twitter.com/XGWuOCjonB

We can only imagine the fear that those with loved ones in Florida are feeling right now.

Evacuating isn’t as easy as just getting up and leaving– there are hundreds of thousands of people living in the path of Irma which meant gridlock traffic days in advance and sold out flights. Not everyone who  was affected was able to leave their homes, even if they desperately wanted to. According to Gad, his parents, brothers, sister-in-law and niece and nephew were all stuck with nowhere to go until Bell stepped in.

Gad says his parents, brothers, sister-in-law and niece and nephew were all stuck with nowhere to go until Bell stepped in.

He said Bell “literally saved my parents and my entire family tonight from #hurricaneirma” by getting the whole Gad family a hotel room at her hotel in Orlando.

He writes “You are truly an angel sent from above.”

Just like Ana helped Olaf’s family during their time of need!

Hurricane Irma is a tropical cyclone that recently made landfall in the U.S. state of Florida as a major hurricane, and was the most intense Atlantic hurricane observed in over a decade. The ninth named storm, fourth hurricane, and second major hurricane of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season, Irma has caused widespread and catastrophic damage on its track across the Atlantic, most of which was caused in the northeastern Caribbean. It is also the most intense hurricane to strike the United States since Katrina in 2005.

The storm caused catastrophic damage in Barbuda, Saint Barthélemy, Saint Martin, Anguilla and the Virgin Islands as a Category 5 hurricane. The hurricane has caused at least 42 deaths thus far (one in Anguilla, one in Barbados, three in Barbuda, ten in Cuba, eleven in the French West Indies, three in Puerto Rico, four on the Dutch side of Sint Maarten, five in the contiguous United States, and four in the U.S. Virgin Islands).
