Eight American Red Cross disaster volunteers deployed from Tennessee Monday to join hundreds of other volunteers in preparation for Tropical Storm Isaac.
The volunteers are currently stationed in the Gulf Coast.
"Red Cross workers understand the rollercoaster of emotions the Floridians will be going through. Our teams will provide the care and support to get them back on the road to recovery," said Regional CEO Joel Sullivan said in a release.
The American Red Cross is also offering a "safe and well" Web site, which allows those affected by the storm to let loved ones know where they are.
Users can register for the Web site online at RedCross.org or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS to be connected to an area Red Cross chapter.
Anyone who would like to help can make a donation by visiting the Red Cross' Web site, calling 1-800-RED-CROSS, or by texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
