  Tornado Response
The Birmingham Area Chapter of American Red Cross is continuing respond to the tornado that touched down in Blount County Friday night. Red Cross currently has two Emergency Response Vehicles (ERV’s) on the road providing food and damage assessment to those affected.

87 meals were distributed last night, 100 were served this morning and 100 lunches are currently being provided by the services of Red Cross. Ten homes have been assessed with roof damage.

The Red Cross closed the shelter that was available at the World Outreach Center in Oneonta at 1:30 a.m. due to no population. The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is staffed with volunteers working to provide assistance. Volunteers are in place that speak Spanish so the Hispanic community can be serviced as well.
