The American Red Cross sets up in Hattiesburg

There's still no telling where Gustav will make its next landfall, and the American Red Cross is already on the defense.

Red Cross reinforcements bringing supplies arrived in Hattiesburg Thursday afternoon. These members will spend Friday setting up at their headquarters in the Hub City. They will also begin the early stages of their hurricane plan.

About 50 emergency response vehicles are expected to arrive as well.

"Our headquarters out there will be ramped up tomorrow with personnel coming in from all over the country to support the possibility that we may have to respond to this hurricane," said Executive Director Janice Vannatta.

If you have questions or need assistance, you can call the American Red Cross at 601-582-8151.
