FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The Emergency Response Vehicle left the American Red Cross of Northeast Indiana headed to Birmingham, Thursday.

Birmingham was recently hit by tornadoes and flooding.

Indiana Red Cross chapters now have 13 volunteers in Arkansas and Alabama.

These volunteers will provide food and transport supplies.

Most of them are experienced and know what needs to be done.

Red Cross Volunteer Clayton Martin says, “I enjoy this very much. I went last year on the Nashville flood. It was very overwhelming. You just go down there and you see the people in need and your heart just goes out to them. A lot of good people.”

These volunteers will be providing help for up to the next three weeks.
