FLORIDA MARRIOTTS AND AMERICAN RED CROSS TEAM UP TO AID HURRICANE ANDREW VICTIMS

 FLORIDA MARRIOTTS AND AMERICAN RED CROSS
 TEAM UP TO AID HURRICANE ANDREW VICTIMS
 MIAMI, Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Elizabeth Dole, president of the American Red Cross, has entered the hurricane-ravaged area of South Florida to offer aid to the victims of this morning's Hurricane Andrew.
 Headquartering first aid services from the Biscayne Bay Marriott Hotel & Marina, Dole will preview Miami and Homestead damage and direct American Red Cross efforts accordingly. Currently closed to the public and without water, the Biscayne Bay Marriott has had all electric and phone capabilities revived. Biscayne Bay Marriott executives plan to facilitate media communications needs from the hotel as well as provide complimentary food and shelter emergency services to hurricane victims in conjunction with the specifications of the American Red Cross. Two other properties -- Miami Airport Marriott and Miami Marriott Dadeland -- will also provide American Red Cross support as the hotels regain operational status.
 Marriott's Orlando World Center and Orlando Marriott International Drive are housing the first major groups of Red Cross volunteers entering Florida to be assigned to the South Florida areas hit hardest. Complimentary rooms and meals are being provided to the American Red Cross by the Marriotts. Victims who have suffered extensive property damage are being relocated from Miami to Orlando and provided shelter by Marriott's Orlando World Center.
 Marriott's Marco Island Resort and Golf Club weathered this morning's storm with more than 1,000 guests and hundreds of residents protected in its 19,000-square-foot ballroom area. Although the Island of Marco has been evacuated, the completely booked hotel remained full and operational although windows and roof tiles were damaged and slight flooding occurred. The resort will continue to house local residents until homes may be re-entered.
