SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – Two volunteers from New Mexico left on Thursday for Texas to help those displaced by the historic rainfall and flooding in Houston and other areas of the state.
Dick and Marilyn Carter are experienced disaster volunteers out of Santa Fe. They are driving the Albuquerque based American Red Cross Emergency Response Vehicle to South Texas to join other Red Cross Volunteers.
Rain storms hit the state hard in some places dumping more than a foot of rain since Sunday. Eight drivers died in the flooding.
The Carter’s will be providing emergency shelter, food and water to those affected by the flood. They will be there for approximately two weeks.
