The Red Cross volunteer is poised to help victims of Hurricane Florence, a Category 2 storm targeting North and sc. You can help by visiting RedCross.org or texting the word "Florence" to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

Florence made landfall as a Category 1 hurricane on the North Carolina coast Friday morning, bringing heavy rain and wind that will leave many homes and businesses damaged or destroyed.

While Florence has been downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm, it's still so unsafe. Some of the recommended groups are Animals of Hurricane Florence, helping with animal rescue; Task Force 75, a group of volunteers helping with relief; and Planet Ready Hurricane Relief.

Cox said the needs of those in the storm-impacted areas will evolve in the coming days and weeks, and also encouraged those who wish to contribute to watch for updates on how to help.

Customers wishing to make a donation should specify the amount when they purchase their groceries. Like I've already seen they ran out of cots in North Carolina. He said more than 1,500 units of blood that were scheduled to be donated in the areas affected by the hurricane need to be replaced.
