Ala. Red Cross Sends Vehicles Into Storm's Path
American Red Cross officials say the agency's Alabama region has sent five emergency response vehicles to help with mobile feeding and bulk distribution of relief supplies due to Hurricane Sandy.
The Red Cross said in a statement that three more ERVs were scheduled to leave Monday or Tuesday for areas in the path of the storm. So far, 16 volunteers from Alabama have been deployed to assist with Hurricane Sandy response efforts, with more on standby.
Nationwide, the Red Cross said hundreds of people have already sought shelter at Red Cross shelters along the East Coast.
Red Cross workers are preparing to open and support more shelters today as the storm moves north.
