The Southern Arizona Chapter of the American Red Cross is sending three additional volunteers to assist with Hurricane Harvey efforts.

They will depart from Tucson International Airport Sunday at different times.

Among the volunteers is Steve Komerska and Keith Morin. 

When asked why he is going to Houston, Komerska said, " I didn't sign up with the Red Cross to stay at home, I want to go and help people wherever they are".

This is the first disaster relief operation for both Komerska and Morin.

They will be on assignment for 2 weeks.
