Quad Cities (KWQC)-Two Red Cross volunteers from the Quad Cities are heading to the Southeast to help Hurricane Matthew.  Volunteers will go to Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas, but exact locations will depend on the storm track.

Right now the Central and Southern Illinois Red Cross Chapters are sending a staff member, 10 volunteers, and 3 emergency response vehicles.  Officials expect those numbers to rise significantly over the next 24 hours.
