The local Red Cross chapter is making sure they have things ready in case a storm comes our way.

So far, $30 million dollars has been spent in training and preparing volunteers.

If a disaster strikes, those with the organization can shelter 350,000 people a day, as well as provide one million meals each day.

However, officials say the best thing to do for yourself is have a plan.

“Think ahead, always plan for where you're going to go, whether it is a hurricane or a tornado. If you will at least think about it, our kids prepare for disasters in school, you need to prepare your kids for a house fire as well,” said Executive Director of the Red Cross, Susan Holmes.

If you would like to help the Red Cross or would like more information on how to prepare, you can go their website: www.redcross.org.
