TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The Salvation Army in Tallahassee is also preparing ahead of the storm for how they'll need to help the community after it.

Staff and Volunteers at their location off Allen Road were busy today moving palets of food and drinks from their downstairs storage area, into their kitchen.

They've also been placing orders for water and MRE's, or "meals ready to eat."

They're expecting a semi to deliver those items as soon as the storm has passed so they can deliver them to those in need after Hurricane Michael.

"We are prepared to receive up to 10,000 meals every other day from our state partner agencies and divisional headquarters," said Lt. Ryan Mao. "We're preparing for the worst and hoping for the best." 

There will also be 37 canteens, or mobile feeding units, from around the state that will be deployed to the panhandle region as soon as the storm has passed.
