Red Cross responds to Hurricane Florence

Google to Match up to $1 Million in Donations to the American Red Cross During Hurricane Florence

The American Red Cross is helping people in multiple states as Hurricane Florence pummels the Carolinas with strong winds, heavy rain and unsafe tidal surges.

A crisis response page has been set up to allow Facebook users to alert others if they are in the affected area. The state of North Carolina is accepting disaster relief donations.

She recommends that people send money donations to the Red Cross if they would like to help but are not physically able to volunteer.

Richard Smith, The Executive Director of the American Red Cross for Central and Western South Dakota, says their volunteers are prepared to help in any way possible.

Customers wishing to make a donation should specify the amount when they purchase their groceries.

"These are firefighters from New York who have raised their hands to go out in these risky situations and help Americans in their darkest moments", said Josh Lockwood, the CEO of the American Red Cross of Greater New York.

Two more volunteers deployed over the weekend, with almost 40 from Pennsylvania now on hand.

A nurse from Hamilton is working with the Disaster Health Services team.

Six volunteers from the local Red Cross chapter left Tuesday to drive into the storm with an emergency response vehicle to provide safe shelter and comfort for evacuees across six states. As families seek refuge, they could use your help.

Robertson is with the Northwest Region of the American Red Cross. More than 140 blood drives had to be canceled because of the storm. The organization urges eligible donors to donate blood in unaffected places.

Another way to help is to text FLORENCE to 90999, which provides a $10 donation to the Red Cross. Alabama organizations have been preparing for days to help those areas that might be in need.
