Lubbock Volunteers Head To South Texas To Provide Hurricane Relief

A group of Lubbock Red Cross volunteers will head to South Texas Monday morning in anticipation of Hurricane Emily.

The volunteers lead by County Commissioner Ysidro Gutierrez will provide hurricane disaster relief. The group will take the emergency response vehicle and remain in the area for at least one week. Volunteers  announce their plans at a news conference later this morning at the American Red Cross.

Some of the supplies Lubbock Volunteers will be providing to South Texas residents include:

  • Blankets
  • Canned Food
  • Batteries
  • Flashlights
  • Medical Supplies

At this time Steve Divine tells us South Texas residents could experience very heavy rains especially near Brownsville. The eye of the hurricane made landfall early Monday near Cozumel. South Texas residents have made preparations by filling sand bags to protect their communities. If you would like to make a donation to our local American Red Cross you can call (806) 765-8534.
