North Texas Red Cross Volunteers Head Down South

With Hermines, flooding is a concern for the Red Cross



    The Dallas chapter of the American Red Cross is sending a couple of volunteers down to South Texas for tropical storm relief efforts.

    A spokesperson for the Red Cross said the volunteers will be bringing in supplies and setting up shelters if necessary.

    According to the National Weather Service, Hermine dumped five inches to a foot of water down south, so flooding is the concern right now. The Red Cross said, as with every storm, they never know what to expect until they get down there.

    "We don't know what the storm is going to do or how much damage is going to be caused, but we know we have to be there to be able to help the families if they're impacted," said Jennifer Jackson, American Red Cross spokesperson.

    The Red Cross also has volunteers on stand by here in North Texas because of the heavy rain and thunderstorms in the forecast.
