TN Red Crossers Continue to Help Those Affected by Southern Storms

Here are some photos that were taken yesterday of the devastation in Albany and Ashburn, Georgia, two of the many Southern communities hit by last weekend's storms and tornadoes. Reports indicate more than 1,100 homes have been affected across Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana and Florida. This number is likely to increase once all inaccessible areas are accessed.

Over 130 people in Georgia and Mississippi are still seeking refuge in 7 Red Cross and community shelters. Several Tennessee Red Crossers have deployed to Georgia and Mississippi this week to help,

The Red Cross depends on donations to provide immediate relief. Help people affected by Southern Tornadoes and Storms by visiting, calling 1-800-RED CROSS, or texting the word TORNADO to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Donations enable the Red Cross to prepare for, respond to, and help people recover from this disaster.
