55 TN Red Crossers Deployed to LA, 1K Nationwide
As of last night, Tennessee now has 55 Red Crossers deployed to help with Louisiana flood relief efforts. Several Red Crossers are on standby, and they'll be deployed when positions open or when the time is right in the schedules.
In total, more than 1,000 Red Crossers from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico are helping in Louisiana. Floodwaters still cover neighborhoods, more than 100 roads are closed, and thousands of people have no power.
