Anyone in temporary housing urged to register with Red Cross by Friday

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Following the Dec. 11 tornadoes that destroyed or badly damaged hundreds of structures in Bowling Green, the Red Cross has provided temporary housing to multiple people.

Many others have received help through charities, family members or are using private funds to provide temporary shelter for themselves. It is important that anyone who is staying in temporary shelter – which may include hotels, a family or friend’s home, AirBNB or anything that is not their permanent residence – register with the Red Cross by Friday, Jan. 14, Warren County Emergency Management Director Ronnie Pearson said.

You can register in person from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. tomorrow and Friday at the old Sears store in Greenwood Mall or online at www.redcross.org/local/kentucky/get-help.html.

For those who are ineligible for assistance from FEMA, the Red Cross has programs to provide a variety of types of disaster assistance.
