TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - As Hurricane Florence strengthens and moves closer to the Carolina coast, its threat to Florida has gone down.

But the Tallahassee Salvation Army says it's still ready to help storm victims.

Salvation Army deployed mobile feeding units, staff, and volunteers from across Florida, to help the Carolinas, where the storm is expected to make landfall.

The Tallahassee Disaster Team left for Charlotte, North Carolina around 10 a.m. Tuesday morning.

"The great thing about the Salvation Army is we serve every zip code in this nation, so that means our canteen and 20 others from our state will be converging there in the Carolinas," said Ryan Meo, a corps officer at the Salvation Army. "People expect us to be there, people expect the Salvation Army to serve during times like this."

Other Florida teams headed to the Carolinas, include Jacksonville, Orlando and Vero Beach.
