La. Red Cross volunteer heading to flooded Colo.
BATON ROUGE - A Red Cross volunteer from Louisiana boarded a plane today to help people flooded out of their homes in Colorado.
Carolyn Adams is one of hundreds of Red Cross workers in Colorado who are helping provide shelters for evacuated residents, health services, and emotional support.
Government officials estimate as many as 18,000 homes are affected by the Colorado flooding. More than 250 trained Red Cross disaster workers are deployed to Colorado, along with more than 20 emergency response vehicles and six trucks of relief supplies.
Nancy Malone with the Red Cross chapter in Baton Rouge said additional four volunteers from Louisiana are scheduled to leave tomorrow.
