Local Red Cross volunteers prepare for Isaac

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) – As Tropical Storm Isaac continues to threaten the Gulf Coast, local Red Cross volunteers are preparing for its backlash.

Stan Gilbert with the American Red Cross says 21 volunteers from Tennessee are expected to leave for the hardest hit areas Tuesday, with six being from the southeast region.

They're expected to serve for at least the next two weeks.

The Red Cross is in action throughout the Gulf region, providing shelter and help in Florida, and preparing to open evacuation shelters in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

If you would like to help, visit the Red Cross online, call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767), or text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
