AMERICAN RED CROSS OPENS SHELTERS FOR AREA STORM VICTIMS

Posted in Police Reports

[Rochester, MN, June 18, 2010, 12:15 AM] - The American Red Cross has opened an emergency shelter at Autumn Ridge Church, 3611 Salem Road SW, Rochester, for any area residents who are without safe shelter due to the tornadoes and straight-line winds that hit Rochester and the surrounding areas late Thursday evening. Families are advised to bring along basic emergency and personal items that can help them through the first few hours in the shelter.



A shelter is also open at the National Guard Armory, 410 Prospect Avenue, Albert Lea.



The Community Center in Ellendale, 505 2nd Street, is also open and staffed with Red Cross personnel.



Once the danger is over, damage assessment teams will evaluate damages to homes. With the preliminary damage assessment information, the Red Cross will determine the best service delivery approach to the particular situation.



You can help people affected by disasters like the recent tornadoes and windstorms by donating to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. On those rare occasions when donations exceed Red Cross expenses for a specific disaster, contributions are used to prepare for and serve victims of other disasters. Your gift enables the Red Cross to provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance to victims of all disasters. Call 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or 1-800-257-7575 (Spanish). Contributions to the Disaster Relief Fund may be sent to your local American Red Cross chapter or to the American Red Cross, P. O. Box 37243, Washington, DC 20013. Internet users can make a secure online contribution by visiting www.redcross.org.
