Google to Match up to $1 Million in Donations to the American Red Cross During Hurricane Florence

Iowans working with the American Red Cross are on the ground out east to help the people who are affected by Hurricane Florence. The Red Cross says it has more than 2,000 disaster relief workers now deployed to the region.

Members of the National Guard are ready to help them get supplies to places they can't reach.

Hurricane Florence made landfall on Thursday as a Category 1 storm bringing catastrophic winds, rain and flooding to the low-lying land of North and SC.

All locations of the country's largest grocery chain in the Mid-Atlantic are turning their focus to victims of Hurricane Florence in the Carolinas.

The JCPenney Communities Foundation made a $50,000 donation to the American Red Cross.

Numerous local volunteers now in the disaster zone, have experience in other recent disasters, including Hurricane Harvey in Texas.

The volunteers have been driving emergency response vehicles, operating shelters and distributing food and supplies, among other things, Williams said.

If you do want to donate to the Red Cross be sure to specify you want your donation to go towards Florence relief. "We're helping people that are really in need".

Blood donations are also critical during this time.
