In the disaster drill, some 90,000 people have been affected by a series of tornadoes, high winds and flooding. Widespread power outages have occured. The Red Cross is setting up 12 shelters now for thousands of people in the Dallas area. Information remains sketchy, but we are working with government agencies to get the information grounded as soon as possible.

Two shelters have been opened in South Dallas near the Duncanville/Cedar Hill area.
