Albany volunteers return from Charley

September 2, 2004

Albany-- Two Red Cross volunteers, back from helping people in Florida clean up after Hurricane Charley, are ready to turn right back around when Frances hits.

John and Libby Crump flew into the Southwest Georgia Regional Airport this afternoon after 21 days in Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda--two areas devastated by Charley.

They say Floridians are fearful of another hurricane, "They said they hope it wasn't going to come back again, another hurricane, because that is bad enough what they had and they didn't want another one."

The Crumps estimate 40 percent of the homes in those areas were destroyed by Hurricane Charley.

After working 14 hour days, the couple is back for a little R&R, but they plan to return to Florida.
