(Farmington, Conn./CBS Connecticut) – Connecticut American Red Cross volunteers have joined colleagues from around the country in the relief effort post-Hurricane Matthew.

The storm has left behind floodwaters and structural damage.

About 30 volunteers from Connecticut are assisting delivering food, water, and clothing, as well as finding shelter to those who need it.

Spokeswoman Stephanie Arcangelo says the voluteers stay for an average of 11 days, some as few as ten and others for as long as 14 days.

Arcangelo says along with the volunteers, the Connecticut Red Cross has sent several of its emergency response vehicles.

Those wishing to assist can contact the Red Cross at 1-800 RED CROSS.

Arcangelo says monetary donations can be made by going to redcross.org.
