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

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.
