Weekly Disaster Stats

With the recent earthquakes in Haiti, Chile and Turkey, it's easy to forget people are suffering in our own backyard from disasters. Here's a look at last week's disaster statistics:

13 incidents occurred in the DFW area and 49 individuals received assistance from the Red Cross. More than $7,350 in financial assistance has been pledged to help these families.

Don't forget to stop by your local Walgreens store and pick up your Weather Alert Radio. You never know when a disaster may strike, so be prepared!
