A volunteer from the Pikes Peak Chapter is among more than 1,200 people the American Red Cross has deployed to help in the aftermath of severe weather that devastated areas of 13 states over the last week.

The Colorado Springs Red Cross volunteer has been sent to Arkansas, where tornadoes touched down near Little Rock on Sunday, demolishing homes and killing more than a dozen people.

The storm ripped through areas of the south, midwest and even in Pennsylvania and New York. According to the Red Cross, hundreds of people in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Kansas, Mississippi and North Carolina are staying in shelters because of tornadoes and flooding. By Friday, volunteers had served more than 70,000 meals and handed out 11,000 relief items.
