As Texas faces historic rain and unprecedented flooding, the Red Cross in L.A. is organizing dozens of volunteers to help. The organization says they're ready to send more aid. A spokesman for the Red Cross, John Meyers, told KFI's Kris Ankarlo that the emergency response center has been activated to coordinate help.
"Another thing that we're looking at right now, is possibly sending out some emergency response vehicles. These are the vehicles that will take food and other needs out to the communities that have been hit by the devastation."
Meyers says the Red Cross has already seen an increase in donations, both in blood and money. Meyers says coverage of the devastation really brings it home for people.
"When people see on the television what's going on in other parts of the country, the hearts open up and they want to give."
If you'd like to help, you can donate to the Red Cross here. Meyers says there are other ways for you to help if you are unable to donate money or supplies.
"There certainly is a need for blood, there's always a need for blood."
