In Moore, Okla. there is a need for everything from food, water and shelter to communications to coordinate relief efforts, and the first of many volunteers from Spokane is leaving soon to help get the lines of communication back open.
Sending one person may not seem like much, but Sharon Andrews, a communications manager, has helped in relief efforts in places like New York after Super Storm Sandy, can do more than you think.
Andrews already has her bags half packed and is ready to jump on the next plane to extend a hand to those in need.
"I'm a little apprehensive about this one too. It's hard," Andrews said.
A national Red Cross volunteer, Andrews felt the call to help during Hurricane Katrina.
"It was very overwhelming," she said.
Since Katrina, Andrews has been to over 23 disaster zones, her last stop New York where she was pre-positioned for Super Storm Sandy. This time she's headed to Oklahoma to help the town of Moore recover from Monday's deadly EF5 tornado.
"The startup is always the most intense but it is the part that I love the most," she said.
