Out of Power? The Red Cross Has a Place For You

Many folks in our area are without power and are in need of a place to stay. That's where the American Red Cross steps in to help.
 
They have set up several shelters in our area to give those affected by the storm a meal and a dry, warm place to stay. Volunteers were getting ready for eight people to stay the night at a shelter at Grafton High School in Taylor County. Staff prepared sandwiches and set up cots and blankets and said they're ready for anyone in need of assistance.

"Honestly a lot of them will just be cold. They'll be in the house that'll be cold. No way to fix anything to eat, no way to heat their house and they're not going to have any lights. So, we open up a shelter and we hope that somebody comes in and we can keep them warm for the evening - give them something to eat," said Mike Lancaster.
 
If you or anyone you know is in need of a place to stay, call the American Red Cross at 304-598-9500 to find the nearest shelter in your area.
