Some local American Red Cross volunteers are making the trip out to help victims of the flooding.
Monday morning, two Quad Cities Red Cross volunteers and an emergency vehicle took off for Denver, CO. One more will travel there tomorrow. They're bringing supplies like food and water to shelters and areas hit hardest by the flooding.
Mary Johnson is one of the volunteers. She's been helping with the Red Cross for more than 20 years: she says seeing people lose it all never gets easier.
"You don't know how these people feel," Johnson said. "And to see it on TV it makes you feel bad if you're sitting at home, but it's personally devastating when you see it in person."
Local Red Cross leaders say they will likely send more volunteers in the coming weeks.
