A group of American Red Cross workers from New Hampshire and Vermont traveled to Texas over the weekend to help with recovery efforts from Tropical Storm Harvey.

Lloyd Ziel of Greenland is chief communications officer for the organization’s N.H. and Vermont chapters.

He spoke with NHPR Monday morning from a shelter at the convention center in downtown Houston.

“Right now in the shelter, we’ve got 2,500 people, as of last night. It’s a large amount of folks that are looking to get some shelter, get a meal in their stomach, and start to make a plan for what recovery is going to look like.”

Ziel is there with two other Red Cross workers from New Hampshire: Kristen Bineau of Manchester and Tracy Smith of Stratford.

He says they expect to be there for two weeks.
