EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

Local volunteers are heading south to help victims of Hurricane Matthew.

Friday afternoon, two new volunteers left for the coast, and for one Evansville native, it's personal.

Carol Saul lost her house in a fire back in 2001 and says the Red Cross was there for her when she and her family needed it the most.

"The Red Cross was right there, and they told me what to do, and what to take care of, and when you go through something like that, you can't think, your minds in a fog, and they were right there to help me so its time to pay them back," Saul said.

Executive Director of the Southern Indiana Red Cross Chapter Theo Boots added, "We think this is going to be several months, of effort, relief effort."

Boots says they are still looking for volunteers.

If you would like to get involved or donate, call (317) 684-1441.
