A local Red Cross volunteer will be heading to Colorado to help residents dealing with the flooding there.
Beth Shook, of Cuba, Allegany County, will be deploying Tuesday to Colorado where she will serve as a volunteer manager in staff services.
Red Cross workers are at the Boulder Airport reception center to provide care and comfort as stranded residents arrive after being airlifted out of flooded neighborhoods and towns. Sunday night, as many as 1,000 people stayed in 24 shelters across the state.
