And then the elevators will be out the lights will be out they'll be trees in the way how are you gonna get to all the people that need you what that number one.
I think we're gonna make sure we do is that we have all of our volunteers in the safe area once it is safe for them to get win.
They will begin going out into -- assessing the damage and providing relief supplies to those folks that are still in -- -- -- we also have shelter locations.
He -- -- Red Cross dot org you can get updated list of shelters.
We're gonna have volunteers in these areas but he did address -- very unimportant issue that this is going to be a very large storm.
