JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Two Red Cross volunteers from Jacksonville left Sunday for Gainesville to prepare for the aftermath of Isaac.  They are staging equipment there so it's ready to go in case shelters are needed.

Volunteer Chris Thomas says he's concerned the ground is already saturated in counties like Suwannee and Columbia as a result of Tropical Storm Debby in June, and he is also concerned about a potential storm surge in Dixie and Levee Counties.

"We're concerned about the people the potential impact on the victims of what may be coming," Thomas said. "We just want to be prepared and have what we need in place ahead of time so that if the need arises we are there with what we need to help the people."

The Red Cross says it is always in need of volunteers. To fill out an application click here.
