Local Red Cross volunteers are ready to head for Texas if they are needed, but right now they are waiting to see what kind of impact the storm will have on the Shreveport Bossier area.

North Louisiana Red Cross Director Michelle Davison tells KEEL News she has crews ready to deploy to Texas or Southwest Louisiana as needed. She is concerned about the potential for flooding in our region.

She says the best way you can help is to make a financial contribution. She says while some supplies are needed, they often can be a problem during the early going. Volunteers might have to spend time dealing with loading an unloading when they are needed for more critical services.

You can help by giving blood as the blood supply is critically low.
