10 a.m. – The Red Cross continues its disaster response across the nation, from Texas to Virginia, and our local Red Cross member – Joe Hansen – begins his second day on the ground in North Carolina. As part of the Advance Public Affair Team (APAT), Joe and his fellow team members are making sure the public stays constantly informed about how to stay safe, how the American Red Cross is responding and how to get the assistance they need.

In the video below, Joe talks a bit about the unpredictable nature of the storms, and the damage he witnessed yesterday.

Follow Joe’s fellow APAT member, Dave Schrader — from the American Red Cross Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter — on the Red Cross Southeastern Pennsylvania Blog for additional information on the ways the Red Cross is responding in North Carolina.
