This morning Red Cross workers prepared to head out into the community to conduct assessments of the damage from last night's storms. As the vehicles were loaded up and ready to head out, the storms forced them back inside. The teams returned to the Dallas Area Chapter to wait out the storms.
For the past few hours, the Red Cross has been in its command center monitoring the weather and communicating with emergency management officers.
We stand ready to respond as soon as it is safe to head out.
People who need assistance can call the American Red Cross-Dallas Area Chapter at 214-678-4800.
