Two Hawaii Red Cross workers have deployed to assist with the Red Cross response to the California mudslides. One is from Maui and the other is from Oahu. Both will assist in the coordination of workers for this response effort.
The heavy rains have stopped in California but the risk of additional mudslides still exists where wildfires scorched thousands of acres. The mudslides destroyed as many as 100 homes and damaged about 300 more.
The American Red Cross is on the ground, providing safe shelter and other services for people impacted by the disaster and has information people should follow to remain safe. Overnight, almost 30 people stayed in 3 Red Cross shelters. Trained Red Cross disaster workers are also providing health and mental health services.
