No longer able to watch the suffering of people along the Gulf Coast, Judy Clanin has volunteered to work as a nurse in the areas devastated by Hurricane Katrina.
Clanin, 49, Anderson, will be leaving for Mobile, Ala., on Tuesday for assignment in Louisiana.
"I couldn't stand to watch it," Clanin said."I couldn't stand watching everyone suffering and decided to do something."
Clanin works as a nurse at Riverview Hospital in Noblesville, which assisted her in contacting relief agencies.The hospital is attempting to get a group of nurses to volunteer to travel to the Gulf Coast.
"It all happened so fast," she said."I went online Thursday and heard from them today (Friday).There is an immediate need."
Clanin was getting immunized for her trip to the area.
She has been on several mission trips in the past to Haiti, Jamaica and Panama.
"I'm a little concerned about my safety," Clanin said."You hear about all the stories of the looting and things taking place.
"I'm a little scared, but also excited," she said."I know it will be a shock."

For seven days, Anderson resident Judy Clanin worked 12 to 14 hour days caring for evacuees from the Louisiana Superdome in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Clanin, 49, works as an emergency room nurse at Riverview Hospital in Noblesville and volunteered to assist in Louisiana.
"The positives outweighed the negatives," Clanin said Friday of her trip to Louisiana."We met police officers and ambulance drivers from New York and South Dakota.The outpouring of support from people was overwhelming."
Clanin worked at a makeshift hospital at Nichols State University in Thibodaux.The hospital was set up in a building used for nursing classes.
When first approaching New Orleans on Sept. 6, Clanin said it smelled like a sewer from 10 miles outside the city.
"It was like a huge sewer," she said."The smell was so bad that we wanted to put Vicks under our noses.When we left a week later, the odor was gone.The devastation is overwhelming to see."
Clanin said the people were appreciative of the assistance.
"My first reaction was ‘oh my,'" she said.
...
Clanin said there was a lot of diarrhea in the makeshift hospital because people were exposed to contaminated water, and a particular rash that was caused by being exposed to the water.
Twenty patients were eventually moved to a hospital north of Thibodaux.Clanin said one baby was born in the shelter.
"It was such a tragedy," Clanin said."There were hundreds of people who didn't know the fate of their family.They didn't want to leave the shelter and become separated from their family members.They were mentally overwhelmed and shell shocked."
Clanin said when the first of the forced evacuees from New Orleans arrived there was a lot of anger.
Armed guards were placed at the front door of the building and in the pharmacy area, she said.
Clanin said aid was available for people, but it was difficult to get those in need to where the assistance was.She said Federal Emergency Management Agency officials and the Red Cross were in Thibodaux when the group first arrived.
She said the need is no longer for medical personnel but counselors to help the victims deal with the situation.
"Working in ER, I have been exposed to a lot," Clanin said.
...
Clanin said the nurses got to know the patients, their stories and family and who they were searching for.
"We can only hope for the best for them," she said.
