WHITE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A White County native has made it his mission to provide relief for people affected by Hurricane Dorian.
The American Red Cross, alongside 21 Indiana residents, are traveling to Florida, Georgia, and both North and South Carolina.
Dorian hit just north of the Bahamas and delivered winds of up to 110 miles per hour.
As we previously reported, two White county residents are embarking on this mission.
Dan Cartmell is stationed in Durham, North Carolina. He said it's important to reach out to communities and provide help.
"You always need people and this is one of those ones where the needs seem to justify getting extra special volunteers," said Cartmell.
Cartmell said he has been on other previous missions with the Red Cross. More recently, he was part of a team who helped Hurricane Irma victims.
"I've been assigned as a feeding supervisor, I'll know more about specifics here in the next day or half-day, but as of now, we're just getting our feet on the ground," added Cartmell.
The National Weather Service says the hurricane may move dangerously close to Florida's east coast by late this evening and continue throughout Wednesday.
