Four Red Cross volunteers from the QCA are out East ready to help in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Susan Kuehl of Davenport, Pat D'Alessandro of LeClaire and Jean Jacobs of Davenport are in Baltimore, Maryland. Cindy Stark of Bettendorf is in Princeton, New Jersey.

"They all arrived safely and are waiting. Today they should be on the move going into areas that are in need of help," Linda Parker with the American Red Cross said Tuesday morning.  

The volunteers drove to their destinations in emergency response vehicles. ERVs are used to serve meals and hand out clean-up supplies.

More volunteers from the Quad Cities are on standby and will be dispatched as needed when the weather gets better.

Sandy made landfall in New Jersey Monday night as a category one hurricane.
