Continuing Efforts as the American Red Cross, Washtenaw-Lenawee Chapter Responds to Dexter Tornadoes
ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN, SATURDAY, MARCH 17, 2012 — The tornado outbreak in Dexter Thursday left a trail of destroyed homes and wreckage in its path. Two days later, residents are beginning the clean-up process and trying to move on. As the recovery efforts begin the Red Cross is responding to the needs of the community by bringing our services to the affected neighborhood.
Red Cross volunteers will be out on the streets offering water, snacks, health services and clean-up kits to the residents as they clean, recover and heal. A shelter will be open to the residents at the Mill Creek Middle School also providing water, snacks, health services and basic needs.
