Hurricane Dorian battered the Bahamas with ferocious wind and rain on Sunday, the monstrous Category 5 storm wrecking towns and homes as it churned on an uncertain path toward the USA coast where hundreds of thousands were ordered to evacuate.

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

Marsh says there are about two dozen additional volunteers locally who are on standby and could be called to Florida, Georgia or the Carolinas in the next 72 hours.

If you would like to get involved with the Red Cross, there will be a shelter training class tomorrow at the Red Cross Office in Gulfport.

The American Red Cross of Missouri and Arkansas is deploying nine emergency response vehicles in response to Hurricane Dorian.

As of Sunday, the Red Cross has mobilizing more than 1600 trained volunteers from all over the country, including 10 from Northeast Ohio, to assist in hurricane affected areas.

While the Red Cross does not typically collect and distribute blood in Florida, approximately 350 blood products have been sent to local blood centers there to ensure patients in need continue to have access to lifesaving blood.

While the Orlando International Airport reversed its original plan to shut down Monday, many individual airlines are canceling flights to and from the hub. The Red Cross now has an emergency need for blood donations following a summer shortage.
