Kansas Red Cross Volunteers Mobilize for Gulf Coast

Hundreds of thousands of Gulf Coast residents are without power due to damage from the remnants of Hurricane Isaac. The National Weather Service says the region will see steadily improving conditions in the coming days, but rivers and other waterways will still have rising levels from storm runoff and earlier storm surge. Meghan Spreer with the Kansas Capital Area Chapter of the American Red Cross says the group is sending a team of volunteers to help with the recovery efforts.

Oil production in the Gulf of Mexico is expected to gradually return to normal, after nearly grinding to a halt as Isaac closed in on the state of Louisiana on Tuesday. Most energy facilities...including key coastal oil refineries...appear to have escaped significant damage.
