WC Red Cross awaits call to assist with Mo. twister
The Westchester chapter of the Red Cross has not yet been called to assist with the aftermath of a devastating tornado that leveled a Missouri town, but representatives say they think it's only a matter of time before more volunteers are needed.
Spokesperson Abigail Adams, who has already helped provide assistance to tornado victims in Tuscaloosa, Ala., says that the victims in Joplin, Mo., where more than 100 people have been killed, will likely be just as traumatized.
The Westchester Red Cross chapter has more than 200 volunteers ready to provide assistance if they're needed, and Adams thinks that time will come sooner rather than later.
