SD Red Cross Volunteers Sent to Texas For Relief Efforts


Three Red Cross volunteers from South Dakota have been deployed to Texas to assist with disaster relief efforts in response to the devastating floods and severe storms that affected the area last month.

The latest volunteer from South Dakota to travel to Texas is Richard Rhoades. The Sioux Falls man will arrive to Houston Tuesday, where he will serve as an emergency response vehicle driver.

The Red Cross says Rhoades will canvas neighborhoods affected by the disaster and provide food, water and relief supplies for families and responders.

Storms that began in Texas and Oklahoma over Memorial Day weekend killed at least 31 people.

The Red Cross says thousands of volunteers from across the country have been deployed to Texas to assist with relief efforts.
