Red Cross working 4 disasters; 220 Wisconsinites deployed to hurricane regions

22 September 2017

For 10 days, an apology has appeared on the Red Cross website after it crashed on September 11.

Red Cross volunteer Judy Kimmons drove from her home in Medford across the country in an emergency response vehicle to help people affected by Hurricane Irma in Florida.

The American Red Cross and other local disaster assistance organizations will open a "one-stop shop" for survivors of Hurricane Harvey.

"This unprecedented demand challenged our infrastructure and caused us to temporarily suspend service", the agency said in a written statement.

A new team of volunteers will be leaving from Rhode Island Thursday morning.

The recall affects about 443,712 trucks in the United States, 46,220 in Canada and 4,485 outside North America. The recall is scheduled to begin October 20, and owners will be alerted when the service can be performed.

Donations for Hurricane Irma victims have been pouring in at the Red Cross office on East St.in Sarnia. The organization has already approved $45 million in financial assistance to more than 100,000 qualified households who needed immediate help.

"I'm very disappointed in the Red Cross", said Handy. If you want to volunteer with the Red Cross, they recommend filling out an application online. Last week, the Red Cross indicated it will launch the new site today that should handle the applications without incident.

If you applied for aid before the website crashed, you do not need to do it again.

The new website will be open through October 10.

He said a training session will be held next Wednesday at the Dayton Red Cross.
