Two Hawaii Red Cross volunteers are deploying to Rota today to help with the Red Cross response for Typhoon Dolphin. Padraic Gallagher, Kauai County Director, and Emily Kukulies, Oahu volunteer, will serve as caseworkers and meet with the families whose homes have been directly impacted by the storm. They will issue people relief items as needed to make their homes habitable such as tarps and clean up kits.
Two Hawaii volunteers were previously deployed to Guam for this response; this brings the total of Hawaii Red Cross volunteers deployed to 4.
In Guam, Saipan and Rota, there were 128 homes affected by Tropical Storm Dolphin; of this, 9 were destroyed and 34 had major damage.
