Coors ships water to storm victims.

Coors Brewing Co. is shipping, nearly 80,000 quarts of drinking water from its Golden, CO, facility to victims of Hurricane Andrew in South Florida and Louisiana.

Six truckloads of the water. enough to provide nearly 20,000 people with drinking water for one day, will leave Colorado bound for American Red Cross distribution sites in the stricken areas.

"As soon as we saw the hurricane was headed for a U.S. landfall, we went on alert for water distribution," stated Bob Weingarten, southern region director for Coors. "We knew there would be need. Luckily, we have a disaster relief plan in place so we can act quickly to help these people."

To bottle the water, Coors temporarily converted its quart beer bottling line to water. The same process allowed Coors to ship water to victims of Hurricane Hugo and the San Francisco earthquake, a Coors official said.
