The storm has already caused the cancellation of Red Cross blood drives in the region, and more cancellations are expected. This has resulted in the loss of several hundred units of blood and platelets so far. The Red Cross has shipped blood products to hospitals in the affected area in advance of the storm as patients will still need blood and platelets despite the weather.

To schedule a blood donation or get more information about giving blood, visit or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
