Local Red Cross volunteers head to Virginia

(WTVM) -

With Hurricane Sandy expected to make landfall later today or early Tuesday, South Georgia Red Cross volunteers are being deployed to set up for disaster relief.

The Flint River chapter of the American Red Cross is sending their emergency response vehicle loaded with supplies to help those who are displaced by Sandy.

Four volunteers from South Georgia will leave Albany on Monday and will be stationed in Ashburn, Virginia. 

"It can feed people that are in the areas preparing, it can feed families that have been totally affected and lost everything and it can transport goods from one place to another," said Nigel Poole, emergency services program manager.

Volunteers will distribute food and assist with clean up efforts throughout the city.

Tune in tonight at 5 p.m. EST for more with News Leader 9's Roslyn's Giles.
