BP America Inc. said Thursday it will donate $1 million to support disaster relief efforts in Louisiana and Mississippi following Hurricane Isaac.

The donation will be made to the American Red Cross and The Salvation Army and divided equally between the two states.

The storm forced BP to evacuate workers from offshore platforms and drilling rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, as well as from onshore facilities in south Louisiana and Mississippi, where hundreds of BP employees live.

BP said it will also provide assistance to its employees and their families in the region.
