Knoxville (WVLT) -- Members of the Knoxville Red Cross are on their way to Nashville to help victims of Tuesday night's storms.

Right now two volunteers have been called to go.

Knoxville Red Cross anticipates more volunteers will be asked to go out west.

Help from the community will bring much relief those who are left homeless just 24 hours after the severe weather.

Red Cross volunteer Bill Manning says, "We are going to be going into the areas that were affected by the storm and feeding people who are displaced by them"

Once the volunteers arrive in Nashville, they will receive further direction on where they are needed the most in West Tennessee.
