Disaster Alert: Winter Storm in KY/WV/TN/MT

Kentucky / West Virginia:
A wintry mix of heavy snow, sleet, rain, and freezing rain continued to impact the two states as the storm moves into the Northeast overnight. The Red Cross is continuing to monitor the situation and has mobilized resources in anticipation of response to the storm.

Tennessee:
A storm system dumped ice and snow that caused major road hazards and left thousands of residents without power in the state on Sunday. The Red Cross participated in conference calls, communicated with local and state Emergency Management Agencies, and placed shelter and shelter teams on stand-by.

Montana:
An avalanche at an urban area in Missoula County made roads in accessible to homes and destroyed at least one residence. The Red Cross deployed Disaster Action Team Members, opened a shelter for residents within the affected area and provided feeding to first responders at a warming center.
