Tornado Brings Volunteers From All Along the East Coast

RIEGELWOOD -- The Red Cross headquarters in Riegelwood was bustling with people trying to give a helping hand.

Officials say the outpouring of supplies and random acts of kindness have been overwhelming.

Volunteers have been working around the clock to help those stranded by the storm.

One woman felt a special connection with Wilmington and decided to give a helping hand. She's from another Wilmington, 550 miles north of here.

The Red Cross says they will remain at Riegelwood Baptist Church for at least three more weeks or until everyone has a roof over their head.
