Red Cross website connects disaster victims to their families

Posted: Updated:

From American Red Cross North Texas Region:

The Red Cross Safe and Well secure website is a way to let your loved ones know you are safe. To register, visit www.redcross.org and click on the "List Yourself or Search Registrants" link under "How to Get Help".

People in the affected areas can list themselves as "safe and well" on the site. Friends and family outside the disaster area can then search for messages from their loved ones by using a pre-disaster phone number or complete address.

Disaster victims can also update their Facebook and Twitter status through the Safe and Well website.

From a smart phone, visit www.redcross.org/safeandwell and click on the "List Yourself as Safe and Well" or "Search for friends and family" link.

Severe storms caused tornado activity in multiple counties throughout the state on Sunday that destroyed homes, damaged others and left thousands of residents without power.

American Red Cross Chapters in Oklahoma dispatched team members, opened three shelters, provided Mass Care and conducted bulk distribution.  Today, clean-up efforts and damage assessment will slowly begin.

Contributions may be sent to your local American Red Cross, 2201 19th Street, Lubbock TX  79401

Contributions may also be made by calling your local Chapter 806-765-8534 or 1-800-RED CROSS. Text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Visit www.redcross.org to make a donation online.
