Red Cross Ready to Provide for Storm Victims

About 40 volunteers were hitting the streets Monday evening trying to map out the areas hit hardest by the believed tornado.

Red Cross officials say while dozens of homes are damaged, only around five are considered unlivable, but they haven't seen many displaced residents.

Still, shelter and hot meals are available for those who need them.

Evelyn Savary with the Red Cross says, "We have two shelters on standby provided people will need them. We will assess their living needs and go from that point. Depending on how many we have, it will depend on how we will shelter them."

The Red Cross is also providing meals for rescue personnel and damage assessment crews. If you do need shelter, call the Red Cross at 850 878-6080.
