The American Red Cross is working with EMAs across their 50-county footprint to assist those who have been impacted by power outages that are the result of the heavy winds to hit our area. 

Warming Centers are places where people can seek relief from the cold until the electricity is restored. Shelters are places where people can spend the night if needed. Most warming centers can be converted to shelters.
