CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – A Palmetto SC Region American Red Cross disaster worker is deploying to Louisiana to assist with flooding response.

Cynthia Fields of Goose Creek is currently the only volunteer being deployed, but the Red Cross says that additional volunteers could be deployed if necessary.

“Rounds of intense rain and strong to severe thunderstorms” have led to significant flooding in the south-central United States.

Fields will deploy on Saturday morning and help coordinate resources for those in need.
