Bowling Green Woman Responds to 24th Natural Disaster, Says Harvey the Worst

A Bowling Green woman has responded to more than two dozen natural disasters but says Hurricane Harvey is the worst she's seen because it’s so widespread. 

Carol Gray is a Red Cross volunteer working near Corpus Christi, Texas.  She’s going to shelters and neighborhoods, providing meals to displaced or stranded residents.  This is her 24th disaster response, and Gray says each experience is different, but the takeaway is the same.

"Always appreciate what you have because it can be gone in the blink of an eye," Gray told WKU Public Radio.

Gray plans to leave Texas this weekend and will likely head to Florida as that state braces for a possible hit from Hurricane Irma.
