MISSISSIPPI (WDAM) - American Red Cross volunteers will soon go to areas affected by flood water last week.
Once the water recedes, there will be damage assessment teams out and teams with bulk distribution items such as clean-up kits for residents in need.
Also, casework teams will see how they can assist folks who have lost medication or have issues with health needs.
"We will be here as long as it takes to make sure the people get the help they need," Disaster Program Manager for southeast Mississippi Red Cross Angie Grajeda said. "There are many ways that people can help the Red Cross through volunteering and financial assistance."
The Red Cross in Hattiesburg is located at 2020 Hardy Street or you can call them at 601-582-8151.
