Hurricane Florence: How you can help those impacted by the storm

Volunteers from the American Red Cross in the Black Hills area are offering their time and support to those on the East Coast as Hurricane Florence begins to cause devastation.

Jim McIntyre, American Red Cross NE Ohio Region spokesperson, said Friday morning one truck was to leave from Cleveland, two from Akron and one from Canton.

Three local Red Cross volunteers have been deployed to storm-impacted areas of North Carolina so far, and more will follow in the comings days and weeks, Collins said. "So I love what I do because I get to work with people".

"They're doing everything from sheltering, feeding, planning", Holly Baker of the Red Cross-Chicago said.

HOW YOU CAN HELP The Red Cross has launched a massive response to this disaster and depends on financial donations to be able to provide disaster relief immediately.

Michael Jordan, a former Wilmington, N.C. resident, UNC basketball player in the 1980s and current owner of the Charlotte Hornets, is working with local organizations and the NBA to raise disaster relief funds.

But she said the number of volunteers is changing every day.

"They put a hold on sending people from North Texas because we are supporting the middle of Texas and Southern Texas for possible heavy rain this weekend". Our volunteers really embrace it, and we really see that.

Members of New York Task Force 1 have been in North Carolina since last week.

The Cajun Navy is a Louisiana based volunteer group that helps rescue people trapped after disasters.
