NY sends FDNY, NYPD heroes to help with Harvey rescue

Red Cross volunteer training sessions could be abbreviated to get help to the flood victims in Texas that much quicker.

Across southern Texas, officials had yet to learn the full extent of the damage from the powerful Category 4 storm.

The Mayor of Austin assured residents Saturday morning that teams are ready and prepared for anything that happens when it comes to Tropical Storm Harvey.

One Big Island Red Cross volunteer already deployed to Houston over the weekend, and five other Red Cross volunteers from Hawaiʻi will depart for Houston on Sunday or Monday.

Four people with the American Red Cross in Savannah recently left to help and many more are on the way later this week. The team is comprised of active and retired FDNY firefighters who volunteer through the Red Cross during times of disaster.

This is the first disaster relief operation for both Komerska and Morin.

But on the other hand, there are clubs like "Phoenix" or "San Antonio", which only once in the "regular" played overtime. Bookmaker offices, as a rule, estimate the probability of a draw with coefficients from 10.00 to 15.00.

More than 30 Red Cross emergency response vehicles are activated with about 20 more on alert.

"We do it to try to help mankind and assist wherever we can", said MDFR task force leader Andy Alvarez.

Hurricane Harvey help is on its way - direct from the Big Apple. Supplies for an additional 22,000 people are on the way. "We're there to provide it", another volunteer said.

He did not know where they would be sent from there, but said the would likely be put to work as soon as they arrive at a disaster zone.

"Each of the volunteers have different skill sets", Tobin said, adding there are mental health professionals, logistics people and those specializing in mass food preparation. You can also make a $10 donation by texting "REDCROSS" to 90999.
