A local Red Cross volunteer left Monday to help people in Colorado still dealing with the flooding.
Steven Erbland, of Dansville, deployed Monday to assist in the efforts as a Bulk Distribution Supervisor. He is one of eight volunteers from the Finger Lakes and Western New York regions helping with the efforts.
The Red Cross says Sunday night, more than 200 people stayed in seven Red Cross shelters across Colorado. Since the response began, the Red Cross has served over 33,000 meals and snacks, handed out more than 46,000 relief items and provided as many as 4,700 health and mental health services.
