A Davenport woman is in Orlando, Florida helping the Red Cross respond to Hurricane Dorian.

Sue Yoder volunteers as a Logistics Facilities Manager, finding buildings the agency can use, such as shelters, offices, warehouses, and Multi-Agency Resources Centers.

Usually, Yoder volunteers for two weeks at a time. She says the damage in southern and central Florida from Hurricane Dorian was limited. And today she's been helping organize the closing of shelters in the southern part of the state.

Red Cross officials are preparing to help people where ever needed. It's accepting donations by mail at 1100 River Drive, Moline, IL 61265, by phone at 800.RED.CROSS (800.733.2767), and online.
