Hawaii Red Cross Volunteers Respond to Oklahoma Floods

HONOLULU (KHNL) - Two volunteers from the Hawaii State Chapter are deploying to Oklahoma to join the American Red Cross relief effort in response to the devastating floods.

Rainstorms, including remnants of Tropical Storn Erin, have caused persistent flooding throughout parts of the Midwest and southern U.S.

Denn Ko of Wailuku, Maui will serve as a health services worker on the relief operation and Doris Wolfe of Aiea will support flood victims as a disaster mental health counselor.

The flooding has claimed at least twenty lives and damaged thousands of structures.
