TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Hurricane Florence, a powerful Category 4 storm, is moving closer to North and South Carolina and is expected to bring strong wind and waves.

This Wednesday morning millions of people are evacuating, clearing the path of Florence.

Locally, the Red Cross here in the Capital City is getting ready to send aid.

Those helpers will be taking off soon, but WXTL ABC's Jada Williams was with them just before they set out on their journey.

Volunteers and Staff with the Capital Area Chapter of the American Red Cross will be going to the Carolinas to assist with Hurricane Florence Disaster Relief efforts.

Two volunteers and the Emergency Response Vehicle will be leaving soon to go to South Carolina to await assignment.
