The kind of record no one wants to break
Preliminary government reports show that 600 tornadoes occurred during the month of April, making it the busiest month on record for tornadoes.
Although it can’t capture the full scope of the devastation and destruction, the map below does give a good insight into how the Red Cross is on the ground, helping all of those in the affected areas.
Locally, we have more than two dozen volunteers who have deployed with the Red Cross to areas like Alabama, Arkansas and Georgia…and we have more leaving each and every day. And that’s the silver lining that shines through all of these terrible storms — stories of neighbor’s helping neighbors, providing a lending hand, a place to sleep, and a shoulder to lean on.
