Dilworth, MN (WDAY TV) - After spending more than three months serving victims of Superstorm Sandy, local Red Cross volunteers are welcoming back their emergency response vehicles.

Two of the vehicles, called ERV's arrived at Dilworth's BNSF Railroad coming in from the east coast.

While there volunteers like Jane Rudlang drove them to deliver food to people thrown into Sandy's destructive path.

All together, the ERV's housed enough food to serve more than 12 million meals and snacks so far, and are still delivering about 40,000 each day.

Jane Rudlang, Red Cross Volunteer: “It's a really proud moment to see our vehicle back again and to be able to be part of bringing it home, 'cause we've spent a lot of time together.”

The Red Cross still has more than 700 workers helping out in the disaster areas.
