Eastern Shore fire company collects donations for Hurricane Matthew relief

KENT ISLAND, Md. - People are still cleaning up from the effects of Hurricane Matthew, and some fire companies are helping with the cleanup effort.

Justin Davis, with the Grasonville Fire Department, has been in contact with Northwood Fire and Rescue in Lumberton, North Carolina. First responders in North Carolina say they are still in bad shape.

So Davis, with the help of Ferndale Fire Department in Anne Arundel County, is trying to get an 18-wheeler full of supplies to help those in need.

"The main thing is blankets. The chief did tell us a lot of people in the shelters are still in the clother they were rescued in," Davis said.

Davis was hoping to leave Tuesday, but the fire chief in North Carolina told them they're still experiencing difficulties from Matthew.
