The Red Cross said more than 125 Red Cross emergency response vehicles are activated and 3 of those are from SC.

The first of two emergency response vehicles from the D.C. area left for Texas Sunday morning.

The Red Cross and Salvation Army will be involved with disaster relief efforts, providing shelter, fresh drinking water, food, toiletries, clothes, bedding and other necessities.

Red cross volunteers from across the country are heading down the hardest hit communities, including the 16 volunteers from Nebraska.

When looking for an outlet on how to be of help, the best avenues are to plug in with those who are already mobilizing to respond to the storm.
