Local Red Cross volunteers headed to Florida to help

Volunteers from the American Red Cross of Central Georgia are headed to the Florida Panhandle to help with disaster relief efforts.

The volunteers are scheduled to leave Macon around noon, according to a statement from Tracy Willis-Kight, executive director of the chapter.

Extreme rainfall in much of the East and parts of the South has caused major problems this week. Florida’s Panhandle and southern Alabama -- which got more than 2 feet of rain in 24 hours -- are among the areas that were hardest hit.
