Arundel Red Cross workers aiding storm-torn New York

January 15, 1998

Anne Arundel County Red Cross volunteers have gone to upstate New York to distribute food and supplies to areas affected by the recent winter storm.

Gary Doyle of Lothian and Jay Sievert of Annapolis left Tuesday, driving two Red Cross emergency relief vehicles to the Saranac Lake area. They will be using the vehicles to deliver food and supplies to communities facing power shortages, severe cold and storm-related flooding.

Doyle, a Red Cross Disaster Services volunteer since 1994, has helped out in 10 national disasters, most recently in April, when he helped North Dakota flood victims. This trip is Sievert's first national assignment.

The American Red Cross has opened 110 shelters in upstate New York, housing more than 7,000 people.
