A local man is packing his bags and gearing up to help those who have survived the tsunami that engulfed American Samoa on Tuesday.

Scott Cline with the Western Colorado Chapter of the American Red Cross will be leaving this weekend for American Samoa to manage a Red Cross Shelter for people who were left homeless after this week’s disaster.

Cline will be gone for at least three to four weeks and will join 50 other Red Cross Volunteers from around the nation.

Other local volunteers have been placed on standby in case they’re needed to help out.
