Area rescue workers redeploy for Rita
By Bob Norberg, Gulf Coast rescuers are redeploying, and more volunteers are heading for Texas and Louisiana to deal with the effects of the twin storms that workers are now dubbing "Karita.""We are deploying 27 to Texas," said Tim Miller, chief executive officer of the Sonoma County chapter of the American Red Cross. "They have already opened shelters in the Houston area, so they are shifting people there."
I work at a small hospital. We will be calling in a temp to replace a nurse technician headed for Louisiana.
