Bismarck – With Hurricane Florence bearing down on the Carolina coasts, some North Dakota residents are on their way to provide disaster assistance.

The American Red Cross Dakota Region says 17 people left Bismarck this morning in three disaster response vehicles to help those in North and South Carolina impacted by Hurricane Florence.

The Red Cross is estimating that as many as 100-thousand people may need emergency shelter once the storm passes.

“People may not be able to get back into their home, were expecting you know, anywhere from nine to fourteen feet of storm surge so there’s gonna be a lot of flooding and so those people that have been evacuated, may not have a home to go back to, we’ll have a shelter to stay at until they can get back into their homes”. Said Rob Stotz, the Disaster Program Manager for the Red Cross in Western North Dakota.

If you want to help, you can text the word Florence to 9-0-9-9-9.
