Even more volunteers from the Southern Tier Chapter of the American Red Cross are on their way to Texas and Louisiana.

47 people and three Emergency Response Vehicles from Western and Central New York have been deployed.

In the Southern Tier region, 10 volunteers are helping victims of Hurricane Harvey.  They come from Binghamton, Vestal, Owego, Johnson City, Endwell, Apalachin, Trumansburg, Ithaca and Freevile.

Residents who want to help the relief efforts can contribute financially by going to redcross.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS or texting the word HARVEY to 90999 to make a ten dollar donation.
