TAMPA, Fla. - As California recovers from deadly storms that brought rainfall totals 400% to 600% above average, the American Red Cross is on the ground to aid in the response. More than 200 trained Red Cross disaster workers are helping, with more on the way including several from Central Florida. On Tuesday, five local volunteers traveled by air to Sacramento to support relief operations for at least two weeks. Among them is Frank Hall, a Pinellas resident assigned to the distribution of emergency supplies.
