Red Cross ready for Irene

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The American Red Cross tells us it may form a staging area in Richmond, before it deploys any volunteers to the coast as response to hurricane Irene.

The National Supply Center in Richmond, near the race track, is stocked.

This is where all the major supplies like tents and coolers are stored for the east coast region.

This massive warehouse contains supplies year round, but can always use more donations.
