Local News

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — 11 local American Red Cross volunteers are helping with relief efforts for Texas.

Tropical Storm Harvey has brought in devastating flooding in Houston, and at least two people have died as a result of the storm.

More rain is expected to come and many people have been forced to leave all that they own behind.

“It’s all just materialistic stuff that’s always kept in your mind, and it’s always going to be there, so it’s good, but it’s just hard,” Tyler Robinson, who was rescued from the floods, said.

Here are the local Red Cross volunteers:

  • John Bieger, East Amherst
  • Ron Chwojdak, Silver Creek
  • Laurie Hagen, West Seneca
  • Norman Kehl, Strykersville
  • Robert Klinshaw, Lockport
  • Mark Kumro, East Aurora
  • Bogdan Miazga, Cheektowaga
  • Stuart Moore, Allegany
  • Joan Priebe, Depew
  • Diane Sargent, Lockport
  • Terry Sweet, Portageville
