The National Guard is checking to make sure everyone is doing well. Since we're currently in a state of emergency, the National Guard is all across the state doing anything and everything to get things back in order. On Monday afternoon, some members were doing personal health checks in southern Harrison County.
The extreme heat can be very dangerous to our health, especially to the elderly and newborns. People that have health problems can also suffer.
There's been cooling centers available to folks since early Saturday and a lot of times neighbors look out for each other. Since thousands were out of power in Harrison County and there's been times the 911 center was down, the National Guard was going from house to house in places like Lost Creek, West Milford and Johnstown to see how everyone was holding up and getting them the help they may need.
They will continue to do this on Tuesday.
Guard members will also help give out water at the Harrison-Taylor 911 Center on Tuesday starting around 8 a.m.
There's now an overnight shelter for those in need in Harrison County. The Red Cross will set one up at the 4H Center in Clarksburg. If you would like to stay there, call the 911 Center's business line at 304-623-6559.
