The Salvation Army of Texas is sending an 11-person incident management team to the gulf coast to assist with the aftermath of Hurricane Michael.    

Staff and volunteers will deliver food, water and supplies to those affected by the storm, specifically near Panama City Beach, Florida.

Lubbock is sending trained disaster personnel and volunteers with a mobile kitchen unit. The canteen is able to produce 1,500 meals per day. It's one of six from the state.

Alvin Migues, the Emergency Disaster Services Director said they will begin serving victims as soon as roads are passable. Many of the staff just returned from helping with Hurricane Florence relief in the Carolinas. 

Migues said groups typically spend 14 days doing relief work.
