Volunteers from the American Red Cross in our region have been sent to Texas to help with disaster response following historic flooding and deadly storms.

Eight volunteers from the American Red Cross Eastern Pennsylvania region have been sent to Texas to help victims of flooding, tornadoes and storms.

The volunteers will help with everything from assessing damage, sheltering and feeding victims.

The death toll from the storms and flooding in Texas and Oklahoma climbed to 23 and was expected to rise as at least nine others remain missing, authorities said late Wednesday.

Those wishing to become volunteers with the American Red Cross can visit the Red Cross website to sign up and receiving training to deploy to disaster scenes like Texas and Oklahoma.
