MIDDLETONW, R.I. (WPRI) - A Rhode Island resident is being deployed with the R.I. Red Cross to help with relief efforts after the tornadoes in Alabama .
Middletown resident Walter Wasowski will be volunteering with the Red Cross to help those in the wake of the deadly storms that hit parts of Alabama.
Wasowski will work on disaster assessment for the affected areas and has been an active Red Cross volunteer.
"Walter will very likely be going street to street and meeting people to view their property and hear their stories. That information helps us better understand exact needs in the affected area," said Rhode Island Chapter Emergency Services Director Liz McDonald.
Once he arrives in Alabama, Wasowski will be assigned to a specific location in which to work. The Red Cross asks all volunteers to be able to commit to a two week deployment in stricken communities.
"We are very proud to have Walter...He will bring to the job the experience he has from his volunteer work here in Rhode Island," McDonald continued.
