Disaster Team Preps For Hurricane Emily

      A team from East Texas is preparing once again to help out, with a hurricane bearing down on the Gulf Coast. The Red Cross has asked members of the East Texas Disaster Relief Team for assistance. The group of East Texas volunteers are ready to set up eight feeding locations in south Texas.

      Each one would serve 20,000 meals if Hurricane Emily strikes our area. The group has fed thousands of people in times of disaster, most recently traveling to Sri Lanka after the tsunami. The team will travel to Houston tomorrow to stage a response to the storm.
