- Thirty Red Cross volunteers from Georgia are headed to North Carolina to help in the response to Hurricane Florence. The Red Cross says it has more than 2,000 disaster relief workers now deployed to the region.

"Right now the storm is still occurring but they're out there doing disaster assessment, disaster assessment", Williams said.

MillerCoors is donating 200,000 cans of water to those impacted by Hurricane Florence, to be distributed at the Red Cross and community shelters.

Papini said monetary donations to redcross.org are accepted that will cover costs to transport items.

By Friday evening, Florence was downgraded to a tropical storm, its winds weakening to 70 miles per hour as it pushed inland.

Andrews said he volunteered and checked to see if an intern could be deployed, which was approved.

Farm Fresh Fast, in Greenville, released a Red Cross Relief Doughnut in an effort to raise money to help victims of Hurricane Florence.

Analysts have also warned that United States companies selling in China could face nationalist backlash against their products. The US has since announced tariffs of up to 25% on Chinese imports worth an estimated $250bn in trade in 2017.


Here's the link to volunteer in North Carolina.

FOX6, the Red Cross and iHeartMedia are teaming up to offer comfort and relief to those facing the aftermath of Florence's incredible destruction. "To all those affected, stay safe and know that we're here to help".

Volunteers are giving up vacation and family time just to help out.

There are many organizations and faith-based groups that have active disaster programs and need volunteers.

The JCPenney Communities Foundation made a $50,000 donation to the American Red Cross. There is a critical need for platelet and type O blood donations.

That includes providing food, shelter, relief supplies, emotional support and recovery planning.

"We want these communities to know that Kroger is with them and we'll continue to do all we can to ease these hard times", said McGee.
