Red Cross crews from Maryland are en route to Florida to provide help as Hurricane Ian nears. The Red Cross said it’s working night and day to set up the relief operation and ensure tens of thousands of people in the potential path of this storm have access to emergency shelter. Water, cots and food join pallets upon pallets of blankets as part of a shipment of emergency supplies that are crucial to the Red Cross response in Florida. “The Red Cross is staging people and supplies in preparation of potentially housing up to 30,000 people,” said Misty Bruce, executive director of the Red Cross Central Maryland Chapter.
