Red Cross Volunteers from Tennessee Helping Those Affected by Flooding in South Carolina, More on Standby

Help by making a Donation to Red Cross Disaster Relief

The Tennessee Region of the American Red Cross has deployed 10 volunteers to South Carolina after one of the most extensive and intense multi-day rain events in the history of the Southeast is causing relentless catastrophic flooding, affecting thousands of residents of South Carolina.  American Red Cross workers are providing a safe place to stay, food, water and relief supplies to people in need.

“Although the rain is expected to end tonight, meteorologists anticipate river flooding to continue for at least several days,” said Sarah Basel, Regional Director of Communications.  “The Red Cross has nearly 200 workers on the ground in South Carolina, and we anticipate more to arrive within the next few days.”

Tennesseans currently deployed:
