IFRC said that hundreds of Red Cross volunteers, emergency response vehicles and more than 30 truckloads of relief supplies were being mobilised to help people living in the path of the hurricane.

Uncertainty about the hurricane's path and the need to make storm preparations also contributed to the decision.

Jim McIntyre, Communications Manager for the Northeast Ohio American Red Cross, says the Cleveland area volunteers are joining hundreds of other volunteers from across the country as they head to areas that will see the most impact from the unsafe hurricane.

The Red Cross is coordinating with community partners and emergency responders to prepare evacuation centers for people who may seek shelter over the Labor Day weekend.

Purnell and other local volunteers are expected to be away for at least two weeks Officials say as many as 60,000 in Florida, Georgia, South and North Carolina may need emergency shelter.

Among those volunteers are Oklahomans - as Oklahoma Red Cross deployed nine volunteers and four emergency response vehicles to the east coast ahead of the hurricane.

Red Cross volunteer Don Speck says "Blood drives might be canceled.as well, and typically summers are a time when more people are on vacation". Schedule an appointment today by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
