Posted: Updated:

A member of the Red Cross in Monroe is headed south to help victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Bob Mahran is a staff health supervisor for the Red Cross and says he knows what to expect when he goes to help. He says his Red Cross training has prepared him for just about anything.

The Air National Guard in Newburgh is also ready to transport specialty items like medical supplies, water filtrate systems and even a helicopter if called upon.

Relief workers say hurricane relief is an ongoing effort and more help will be provided if needed.
