UPSTATE (WSPA) – Eight people are dead, and more than 11,000 are homeless after floods destroyed parts of Louisiana.
Volunteers from around the country are heading to Louisiana to help victims. Some of those volunteers are from the Upstate.
Thirty volunteers from the Upstate Red Cross are helping in the shelters set up.
South Carolina is still recovering from the flooding from last year, so residents know all too well how damaging this can be.
It’s not just Upstate residents helping out.
The University of South Carolina is returning the favor after LSU helped during the historic floods in Columbia last fall.
They’re filling up trucks with water, food, and anything else they can to help the residents of Louisiana.
Volunteers from the Upstate Red Cross will also be going back to Louisiana to help with flood recovery after the water has receded.
