CLEVELAND -- Ohio was one of 16 states to offer help to Florida as Hurricane Irma bared down on the Sunshine State over the weekend, Gov. Rick Scott said in a news conference on Sunday.
Volunteers from the Red Cross have answered the call to help, as about 1,500 workers head to the affected areas, including 17 from Northeast Ohio.
