Virginia tornado relief

As you may have read, a tornado struck in Virginia causing significant destruction and the loss of several lives. The towns most affected are Waverly and Appomattox. Any RV'ers in the area may be able to assist by providing access to a place to rest, wash up or use the rest room, and with an onboard or external generator to provide emergency power due to significant power outages. This could be helpful to the local residents and also to first responders, relief workers and volunteers. The VA Red Cross office (Virginia | Red Cross) may be able to direct you to the best location, but if available and nothing else you could show up on site and get directed by local authorities to where you might be able to assist. Red Cross will be accepting donations either through its general web site or a "micro site" may be set up. Many thanks!

Update from Red Cross:

Virginia Tornadoes
A massive windstorm impacted the eastern half of Virginia causing significant damage on Wednesday. Four reported tornadoes touched down with winds reported around 75 miles hour. Four people were killed after tornadoes hit Waverly and Evergreen, and more than 22 people were injured. An estimated 130 residences are either destroyed or have major damage.

The Red Cross deployed disaster assessment teams to impacted areas, as well as health services teams to assess needs and provide services door-to-door. Red Cross disasters workers also deployed in to the area to provide meals and snacks for impacted individuals and first responders. To date, we have served more than 1,100 meals and snacks for impacted residents. More than 50 Red Crossers are assisting with the disaster response.

Red Cross disaster teams are also on the ground supporting severe weather releated responses in North Carolina, South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama and Indiana.
