ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com)  -- The Red Cross is looking for volunteers to help in hurricane relief efforts as Irma threatens the US.

The local chapter's resources are stretched thin with more than 90 volunteers currently in Texas and Louisiana. Now, they're looking for helpers to be ready to go to Florida and maybe the Carolinas.

Officials with the organization said all volunteers will receive training before they head out.

If you can help, go to redcross.org.
