Local Red Cross Volunteers Help with Hurricane Matthew

At least 29 volunteers and staff with Red Cross Wisconsin are heading to the southern USA east coast to help with Hurricane Matthew response.

"We will be sending some folks down".

Gulatz even volunteered to go help in late November.

But by the way the storm is looking, Libbrecht expects the need to be great.

Morgan said it's hard to say what the situation will be like once they get there, but there's usually a lot of people in need after a major hurricane.

In that time, she's responded to Hurricanes Katrina and Ike and she says those out on deployment can expect devastation. We'll be running food back and forth to the shelters for feeding in the shelters.

Nesbitt, from Mountain Home, and Elliott, from Idaho Falls, are trained volunteers with the American Red Cross. She's been a Red Cross disaster volunteer for more than a decade. Wednesday night, 3,600 people stayed in 84 Red Cross evacuation shelters across Florida, Georgia and SC in advance of Hurricane Matthew.

Help begins with getting volunteers to the area, said American Red Cross Communications Manager Patricia Kemp.

Red Cross volunteers and staff from across Tennessee have been deployed to the East Coast to assist those living in the path of Hurricane Matthew.

Help people affected by disasters like hurricanes, floods and countless other crises by making a donation to Red Cross Disaster Relief.

The crew of 14 are joined by more than 500 Red Cross disaster workers and 90 response vehicles on stand-by in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and SC. If we had a big disaster here, people would come out of state to come help us.
