Date:1/28/2009

BLOOD DONATIONS DOWN; CALL OUT FOR BLOOD DONORS

WASHINGTON, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Red Cross provided warmth and shelter for almost 500 people overnight whose homes were without power from the winter storm that has pummeled its way across the eastern half of the country. According to news reports, the storm has been blamed for 19 deaths and numerous injuries as it moves into the Northeast, bringing with it additional warnings of power outages from the ice and snow.

Officials in many of the affected areas say it may be days until power can be restored. Winter storm warnings were posted from Arkansas to Maine.

Red Cross opened 44 shelters Tuesday in Kentucky, Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Illinois and Indiana. As the storm moves into the Northeast, officials are warning of additional power outages related to the storm.

The storm has also kept residents away from Red Cross blood drives due to the extremely hazardous traveling conditions. Red Cross is asking those who can give blood to make an appointment by visiting www.givelife.org or by calling 1-800-GIVE LIFE. You must be at least 17 years old and weigh at least 110 pounds to give blood. Some states allow 16-year-olds to donate with parental consent. If you have given blood before, it must be 56 days since your last donation.

Red Cross offers the following safety tips for winter storms and power losses:

  • Avoid unnecessary travel. Avoid driving and other travel until conditions improve.
  • Stay indoors during the storm.
  • Walk carefully on snowy, icy sidewalks.
  • If you shovel snow, be extremely careful. Take
