Hurricane Florence may spare western Connecticut, but relief workers from the state are already in the storm's path.
The Americares warehouse in Stamford is filled with boxes containing items like medical supplies that will come in handy for those possibly affected by Florence.
The boxes are packed and ready to go where and when they are needed along the Carolina coast.
Kate Dischino directs the agency's emergency programs. She says two Americares staffers are already in North Carolina, at a safe inland location, coordinating with local relief agencies.
Forecasters say Florence could linger over the Carolinas, dropping up to 2 feet of rain, possibly leaving victims in shelters for weeks.
Americares is still doing work in Texas more than a year after Hurricane Harvey hit there.
