Local residents can also call 404-870-4440. Volunteers are also needed and can call 404-870-4425.

Several Red Cross shelters have already been opened in metro Atlanta, and more may be necessary, officials said.

The Red Cross, supported in large part by donations from citizens and corporations, is making a plea for financial support to help with hurricane relief efforts.
