MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Two Red Cross volunteers left Milwaukee, headed out to help in hard-hit Oklahoma.
"I`m expecting the unexpected," volunteer Bob Phelps said.
Phelps is on his thirteenth deployment with the American Red Cross. He'll be manning an Emergency Response Vehicle or ERV.
"We`ll be going out and feeding people. We`ll take out suppers and lunches," Phelps said. "Sometimes we`ll be carrying out some cleaning supplies and other material that will help the victims out there."
Twenty-eight volunteers from across the Wisconsin are giving support in Oklahoma. They will be there for three weeks, working twelve-hour days, with a threat of severe weather always in the back of their minds.
"Hopefully, I will not run into what a few of our people ran into a couple of days ago, which was a tornado coming down on them," Phelps said.
Even more volunteers from Southeast Wisconsin could be headed to Oklahoma in the next few weeks.
