GREATER LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—People from all over the country are sending support to those affected by Hurricane Dorian.

Although some Indiana residents are showing support in a different way.

One person from White County and another from Brookston are traveling down south with 21 other Indiana residents to help with disaster relief.

The National Hurricane Center reports that the category 4 storm will move dangerously close to Florida on Monday evening.

The hurricane is expected to then make its way to Georgia and South Carolina Wednesday and Thursday evening.

Vice-Chair for the Central Indiana chapter of American Red Cross, Deborah Nichols said this will mean so much to families knowing they have support from all over the country. 

"You know you're, basically have to get out very quickly," said Nichols. "So we have evacuation shelters and we'll transition those into emergency shelters after about a 24 hour period. Then we stay and help assist with food and shelter."

Those traveling are expected to be in Florida, Georgia, and both North and South Carolina.
