ROME: (February 22, 2012) – Red Cross volunteers from the Northwest Georgia Chapter have been in the field throughout the day assessing recovery needs of residents of storm- ravaged Floyd County. The Red Cross will work to ensure that emergency-caused needs are met. Current estimates are that 50 -100 homes were damaged by the Wednesday night storms, including homes in the hard-hit Dykes Creek and Turner Chapel neighborhoods.


The Northwest Georiga chapter is also assembling shelter and disaster assessment teams ahead of another possible round of severe storms tonight.  Wednesday night’s storms are the latest in a series of storms which have swept Northwest Georgia since April of 2011.


“It’s the time of year when the season’s transition and severe weather becomes a real possibility,” said Jeffrey Putnam, chapter executive for the Northwest Georgia Red Cross. “We ask that the community support us as we prepare for what could be an active severe weather season.”


The best way to help victims of this and other disasters is by calling (706)291-6648 to make a monetary donation.
