Print | Front Page | Email this story | Comments ()

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — More than 200 people displaced by severe weather spent the night at six shelters operated or supported by the American Red Cross in Arkansas.

The Red Cross opened two emergency shelters and is supporting four community shelters for residents displaced by tornadoes in three Arkansas counties. More than a dozen people died in tornadoes in Arkansas and Oklahoma on Sunday.

The Red Cross has opened emergency shelters at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Conway and Beryl Baptist Church in Vilonia.

Four other Red Cross-supported shelters are also open. In Conway, they are located at Antioch Baptist Church, Oak Bowery Baptist Church and Point of Grace. A shelter is also available at Mayflower Middle School.

The shelters are providing cots, blankets and food for the displaced residents.
