One Broken Arrow man is headed to one of the hardest hit city's in Louisiana. He hopes to give relief workers a little break from the heat in Slidell.

Hurricane Katrina relief workers are working in extreme heat with very little water and no shelter. Many don't have access to bathrooms or a place to cool off. That's why Walt Cassady is offering up his motor home as a control center.

Walt Cassady and members of the Broken Arrow Church of Christ loaded his motor home with food and about 90 gallons of water. "Well I've been through a flood and I've been through a tornado. I know how it just wipes out everything. And you get real depressed when you realize it just wipes out everything. For someone to come show some love that's really what you need and it helps get you over that."

He's also taking 75 gallons of gas to help keep trucks fueled.
