The American Red Cross of North Alabama is helping relief efforts for Hurricane Matthew.

The Red Cross sent two teams of four people to Tallahassee, Florida to stage and be ready to respond when the hurricane makes landfall. The teams took emergency response vehicles to Tallahassee, where they’ll wait to see where they’re needed to serve in mass care capacity.

The teams got notice Tuesday night to pack and leave for the staging area this morning.

Red Cross officials say several other teams are on standby and ready to help with sheltering victims.
