Wyoming Volunteers to Assist with Hurricane

Written by on September 12, 2018

Volunteers from Wyoming are headed to the Carolinas to assist with relief efforts from the anticipated damage that could come from Hurricane Florence.
The Category-4 storm is expected to make landfall late tomorrow or early Friday morning. More than thirty members of the Colorado & Wyoming Red Cross will be sent to North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia as part of the massive relief effort being staged in anticipation of the damaging winds and heavy rains that are expected from Hurricane Florence.
Florence could produce life-threatening, catastrophic flash flooding & significant river flooding over portions of the Carolinas and Mid-Atlantic states from late this week into early next week. States of emergency have been declared in all three states, as well as Maryland and Washington D.C., as the dangerous storm makes its way toward the coast. Evacuations are widespread.
Volunteers will serve in shelters, provide snacks, meals, drinks and water from Emergency Response Vehicles and manage the logistics and operations of this massive deployment.
