ROCHESTER, Minn. - One Rochester woman spent Tuesday traveling down south to help with hurricane relief.
With Hurricane Michael set to make landfall Wednesday, mandatory evacuations are happening along parts of the Florida panhandle to get people out.
Jane Johnson is a volunteer with the American Red Cross, and is heading to Georgia where she'll be helping with an evacuation shelter for hurricane victims.
"You're just assisting the clients, making them comfortable, making sure they have what they need, and it's pretty much feeding," Johnson said. "They eat and sleep there and in the daytime they're going out and looking at their homes, working on their recovery, and so you're just there to make the clients comfortable."
She is no stranger to deployment. In March of 2016, Johnson traveled to Mississippi to help with flooding.
"I'm sure I'll go again after this," Johnson said. "It's just something, once you've done it, it feels good to help others. It's the bottom line."
She expects to be in the Georgia area for at least two weeks.
