Savannah Red Cross deploying to help in SC

CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

Even as the flooding subsides, calls for help are still expected across South Carolina as victims start to assess the damage.

Some from the Savannah Chapter of the American Red Cross are answering those calls. A husband and wife who volunteer with the Red Cross are heading up to South Carolina to help.

The couple says they’re not sure what to expect just yet, other than what they’ve seen on TV.

"When you go out, it's kind of heartbreaking when you talk to people that have lost everything. You know, it kind of hits home,” said Mark Hayes, American Red Cross volunteer.

"One lady said, I lost everything, that her whole neighborhood was gone. She said the whole neighborhood was gone. She said I don't know what we're going to do. And that's why we're there. We're going to try to help, give them some assistance, and try to get them back on their feet,” said Deanna Hayes, American Red Cross volunteer.

The Hayes' say they're not sure where they'll end up, but they leave for South Carolina Tuesday morning.

The Savannah American Red Cross Chapter anticipates sending more volunteers in the coming days.
