Local volunteers to travel to Texas with American Red Cross

Anyone in Central Texas seeking shelter should call 2-1-1, which is the information line Texas will use to provide locations of shelters that have been activated. In the coming days, they hope to place more volunteers in that area. Morgan said she is a blood donor ambassador and was working at a blood drive Friday so she was not able to leave with some of the other volunteers.

"The league and Houston will make that decision, but we stand ready to help them out", Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said.

Broomfield says the National Guard has been transporting Red Cross volunteers in high water vehicles so they can get out and help the people who need it.

The Red Cross is mobilizing hundreds of trained Red Cross disaster relief workers, truckloads of kitchen supplies, and tens of thousands of ready-to-eat meals to support this response effort.

"When families across Texas need shelter, disaster relief and comfort, Red Cross volunteers are there to help them", said Amy Grace, Executive Director of the American Red Cross serving the Heart of Texas.

"We are set up for all types of rescues, including swiftwater rescues", said FDNY Battalion Chief Jack Flatley, the task force leader. The mayor said the city wants to assist in gratitude for all those who helped NY cope after Superstorm Sandy struck in 2012. It is now at full capacity and is asking the community for financial support as well as for people who can foster dogs and cats as the group begins to accept more animals. You can visit the donation page at and designate your donation as Disaster Relief.

More than 125 Red Cross emergency response vehicles, including the three from SC, also have been activated. "Here comes a Red Cross volunteer that at least gives you something to help bring you back".
