Iowa Volunteers Head to Colorado

CEDAR RAPIDS (CBS 2/FOX 28) - Leo and Diane Mork of Swisher are among nine American Red Cross volunteers headed to flood ravaged Colorado to provide some disaster relief.

With hundreds of people still missing in Colorado after nearly a week of heavy rain and record floods, the help can be used.

The Mork's left Cedar Rapids just before noon Monday in the district's Emergency Response Vehicle (ERV) after getting the call late Sunday. Joining them will be Rod Hamer of Cedar Falls and Lloyd Bradley of Green who are deploying in an ERV from Waterloo.

Nick Moser of Elkader and Harve Vergrugge of Sanborn also left monday morning from Sioux City as did Don Boehler of Marshalltown.

Dan and Deb Snelson of Pleasant Hill will take a vehicle from Des Moines Tuesday.

The Iowans will join the more than 250 Red Cross volunteers already in Colorado. The relief agency is sending more than 20 ERVs and six trucks of relief supplies.

So far, working with the Southern Baptist Convention, the Red Cross has served more than 7,100 meals and snacks to those forced from their homes by flooding.
