Oklahoma Volunteers in Colorado for Relief Efforts

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The American Red Cross of Central and Western Oklahoma is sending several volunteers to Colorado to help out with flooding relief efforts.
    
The group said Saturday that volunteers are deploying from the Norman area, Duncan and Enid. The region will also send an emergency response vehicle to Colorado.
    
By air and by land, the rescue of Coloradoans stranded by epic mountain flooding accelerated Saturday as debris-filled rivers became muddy seas that extended into towns and farms miles from the Rockies.
    
Helicopters and hundreds of National Guard troops searched miles of mountainous terrain for people as food and water supplies ran low in remote communities cut off since Thursday. Thousands were being driven from their homes in convoys.
