Three Red Cross volunteers from Western New York are headed to assist flood victims in Colorado on Tuesday.
A volunteer from Buffalo left Tuesday morning and two others--from Webster and Rochester--left in the afternoon. Right now, officials say the heavy rains have finally stopped and search efforts are underway. So far, as many as eight people have been killed and hundreds more remain unaccounted for at this time.
The volunteers will serve as health service managers.
