As waters continue to rise in Houston and surrounding towns, local American Red Cross volunteers are making their way down to Texas to help.

As people in Texas endured one of the most powerful hurricanes to ever hit the United States since Katrina, Red Cross volunteers from CT stepped in to help. Now, even right here in South Central Kansas, volunteers are heading to Texas, with more arriving soon. She said Hurricane Harvey could be the most intense hurricane that she's been deployed to.

US President Donald Trump on Sunday praised the effective work of various agencies allowing the rescue of thousands of people from Harvey hurricane. A spokesman for the NYPD said they sent 33 Emergency Service Unit officers and six K-9 officers to Houston.

But perhaps the easiest way to help is to donate $10 to the Red Cross by texting the word REDCROSS to 90999.

"Water rescue boats. We carry hazardous materials response capabilities", Garboth said. More than 30 Red Cross emergency response vehicles are activated with about 20 more on alert.

Red Cross volunteers assist with relief efforts including feeding and sheltering storm victims, damage assessment, casework and recovery assistance.

"If this storm does what they are predicting, which is just sit in the area and dump rain, it is going to be catastrophic flooding". "They will move us based on need so I could go in a number of different ways". To help with the coming relief efforts, Apple has begun accepting donations for the Red Cross through iTunes. Donations enable the Red Cross to prepare for, respond to and help people recover from this disaster.
