ABILENE, Texas -

Severe weather is right around the corner and the Red Cross is asking for your help.

They need volunteers just in case a disaster strikes in our area.

They're offering a disaster assessment course on Saturday at the Red Cross office on North 2nd St. from  9a.m. to noon.

Once volunteers have gone through the disaster course they can help national disaster relief operations.  

Right now, they have seven volunteers that cover fifteen counties in the Big Country.
