More volunteers from Springfield’s Red Cross chapter are fanning out across the Gulf Coast to assist with the response to Tropical Storm Isaac.
Keith Pigg of Sherman was dispatched Monday to Louisiana, where Isaac could make landfall as a Category 1 hurricane sometime Tuesday or Wednesday. Two other volunteers… Eric Adams of Springfield and Billy Warner of Nokomis… have been sent to Alabama.
They follow others who left last week for Florida and Mississippi, giving the local chapter a presence across the entire Gulf Coast region that could be affected by the storm. The Illinois Capital Area Chapter of the Red Cross says other volunteers are on stand-by to be deployed if needed.
