Four State Red Cross volunteers helping with Hurricane Isaac relief

Updated:

More than 30 Red Cross volunteers from southern Missouri are in the Gulf of Mexico area helping with Hurricane Isaac relief.

The Red Cross says it will continue to send volunteers to the region to help.  They set up shelters, help with nursing, mental health and the distribution of food.

But the local Red Cross doesn't yet know just how much assistance is needed.

"It's still in the unknown phase," says Nigel Holderby of the American Red Cross of Southern Missouri.  "At this point the damage assessment has not even started for what the damage would be like, so as far as the commitment from the Red Cross, we are there until there is no longer a need."

The Red Cross sent three more southern Missouri volunteers today.
