BATON ROUGE - More Louisiana volunteers left Baton Rouge today to help the American Red Cross with flooding assistance in Colorado.

Spokesperson Nancy Malone says 11 volunteers from south Louisiana are now on their way to the state.

Those volunteers will help at Red Cross shelters and evacuation centers, assisting with logistics, feeding, and staffing. Malone said as many as 500 people stayed in 14 shelters earlier this week, and the Red Cross provided more than 1,700 health and mental health services for people affected by the historic flooding.

Malone said people in south Louisiana who want to continue to help out can do so by donating money through the Red Cross or becoming a trained volunteer. More information can be found at their website.
