Volunteers from California arrive in Laclede County

LEBANON, Mo. -- Ice storm victims are getting chainsaw help from an unlikely source. An all female group of Hoopa Indians of northern California arrived Wednesday to volunteer with AmeriCorps as Laclede County Emergency Management officials began shutting down its shelter at the Cowan Civic Center.

At one time that shelter housed more than 450 people. Now emergency officials are relying on volunteers to help with cleanup.

“Fortunately over the last several days that population has been able to go out and get back to their homes and have been able to find other places to go and so just today in fact we're able to close this shelter as our last families find a place to go,” said Beverly Miller of the American Red Cross.

“People need help. That's what these young people that work for the program, that's what they do. They really get into it when they can help people and that's what they like to do,” said Edward Guyer of Hoop AmeriCorps.

The National Guard delivered water and supplies to many in the county without power. Most of them live in rural areas.
