The American Red Cross Chattanooga Chapter is deploying local volunteers to West Virginia. The thunderstorms in the Mid Atlantic produced large hail and widespread damage. Over three million customers were without power in the affected states and power restoration could take several days.
The American Red Cross, East Tennessee Chapters will be deploying three Emergency Response Vehicles (ERVs) Tuesday to West Virginia. Officials are expecting to deploy more volunteers over the several couple of days. The Chattanooga Chapter will deploy two volunteers Tuesday afternoon. Other plans and preparations are underway placing volunteers on standby.
