The American Red Cross is quickly ramping up a response to the storms that hit the midwest last night, with a focus on western Tennessee.
The Emergency Response Vehicle based in Birmingham has been requested, along with at least five others in several states. We'll let you know what time it is to depart as soon as we determine the available staff that will accompany it.
The primary concern right now is ramping up feeding efforts in west Tennessee. There are a sizable number of people missing or unaccounted for -- and the more support we can lend toward the search and rescue operations, the longer they will be able to remain on the job.
More updates as needed...
