New Orleans firefighters and EMT's are joining a convoy of 100 first responders from Louisiana caravaning to Florida as the state prepares for Dorian to head that way.
In an effort to help those stranded on the islands, New Orleans entrepreneur Sidney Torres met with volunteers at his Mid-City warehouse Monday to pack food for residents who'll have a long recovery period as the storm slowly passes over The Bahamas.
The prepared meal boxes will have food like tuna, beans, crackers, canned fruit, peanut butter, and more, with a can opener in each so those in the disaster zone can eat quickly and easily.
Director of New Orleans Homeland Security and Emergency Services, Collin Arnold, says New Orleans' crews are particularly experienced in swift water rescue situations, which are search and rescue missions that are often required during extreme flooding from storms.
