Seventeen Hawaiʻi Red Cross volunteers have been deployed to aid residents in the path of Hurricane Dorian.
Nine volunteers from Oʻahu, six from Hawaiʻi Island, one from Kauaʻi, and one from Molokaʻi are either enroute or already in Florida, Georgia, and North and South Carolina.
The volunteers will help with mental health services, spiritual care, sheltering, logistics, and staffing.
The Red Cross is working around the clock to prepare for Dorian and help those who have been forced to evacuate, the organization announced in a press release.
More than 12,000 people stayed in 171 Red Cross and community shelters across Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina on Monday night.
