BIRMINGHAM, Ala., March 21, 2013, 2:00 p.m. (CST) -- The American Red Cross Alabama Region is currently assisting residents affected by Monday's severe weather around the state of Alabama. Updated damage reports indicate the following damage assessment for residences only.
This is with approximately 95% of damage assessment completed. It is taking more time to complete damage assessment due to the fact that the areas affected are widely scattered with some in rural areas.
At this time, all Red Cross shelters are on standby due to the cold temperatures forecasted for the state. Dozens of Red Cross volunteers and staff are providing relief to those affected in the northern parts of the state. In the coming days, Red Cross volunteers will be delivering meals, snacks, water, and bulk items (shovels, rakes, clean-up kits, etc.) to families in the affected areas of Cullman, Etowah, and Walker Counties.
Remember, your donations are what help the Red Cross stay prepared and make our relief efforts possible. Financial contributions may be sent to your local American Red Cross chapter or to the American Red Cross, P.O. Box 37243, Washington, DC 20013.
