BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Medical response teams from North Dakota have been sent to Florida to help vulnerable people who are staying in hurricane shelters.

The North Dakota Department of Health says it sent 23 paramedics, registered nurses and EMTs to the Florida Keys.

Florida requested help through the Emergency Management Assistance Compact, which allows a disaster-impacted state to request and quickly receive assistance from other states.
