Tweet of the day: Hawaii Red Cross

Hurricane Iselle makes landfall in Hilo in a few hours. The entire Big Island and Maui are hunkering down. The Hawaii Red Cross posted this afternoon:

Let's go to the Facebook page:


The Hawaii Red Cross disaster truck in Hilo was stolen sometime last night from the Red Cross office at 55 Ululani Street in Hilo. The 2008 F150 Ford truck 4WD with mid-bed tool drawer is white with Red Cross logos. The license plate number is 998 HDP. A police report has been filed.

This vehicle is especially needed by the Red Cross for disaster response for Iselle tonight and the coming days and for Julio in the days following. The Red Cross is also concerned that the individual(s) who stole the truck may be misrepresenting themselves as Red Cross staff or volunteers.

Should this vehicle been seen, please call 911.
