SPOKANE-- The American Red Cross needs more than 600 volunteers to help with response to Hurricane Isaac.

There are three people from the Inland Northwest Chapter of the American Red Cross ready to help with relief efforts. One of them is leading the response for the entire State of Mississippi.

Red Cross relief teams worried Tuesday afternoon as the storm moved slower than expected, giving it more time to destroy anything in its path.

A team of more than 1,000 volunteers is led by Glenn Lockwood of Elk, Washington. He said they are very aware of the significance of this storm showing up on the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

Tuesday evening Lockwood focused on getting his staff in place and shelters ready. He believes they're more prepared and the effects will be less extreme.
