Several local people have made the trek to the Carolinas to help the American Red Cross during Tropical Storm Florence, which was downgraded from a hurricane on Friday.

A nurse from Hamilton is working with the Disaster Health Services team. Mary Carol Yoshino is in North Charleston, South Carolina, where she’s working at a shelter house located in a high school. She says about 150 people are staying there.

“I’m actually anticipating to see more residents coming into our shelter,” Yoshino said. “There are a few that left this morning, a few more than came in this morning. And I think that’s gonna be the story because … some of them have actually been here since Tuesday when the shelter opened.”

There are about a dozen other volunteers from eastern New York who are assisting the Red Cross during the storm. They’ll be in North Carolina and South Carolina for about two weeks.
