Superstorm Sandy wreacked havoc on the East Coast earlier this week but the American people have since come together as one community, and joined hands to help fellow citizens recover from the disaster.
American Red Cross El Paso deployed volunteers and an emergency response team to the East Coast this morning, to help the communities affected by Superstorm Sandy.
The team loaded up their vehicles and left El Paso bright and early. They will drive over 1800 miles across the nation, to the Northeastern regions of the United States, where they will help fellow Red Cross workers with sheltering and feeding storm victims.
Superstorm Sandy has left behind a deadly path of destruction since it struck on Monday. It killed at least 50 people, damaged countless homes, caused massive power outages, and destroyed public transportation systems. Preliminary estimates show andy could cost between ten to twenty billion dollars in damage.
