Red Cross wants people to get ready for “Sandy”


Even though Hurricane Sandy is hundreds of miles away and the East Coast will be the hardest hit, the American Red Cross in Lansing says people in Central and Northern Michigan should be ready too.

The local chapter says they are preparing volunteers, shelters, relief supplies and disaster vehicles ahead of the storm.

Alison Bono, Regional Director of Communications for the Red Cross, said ” the best thing families can do is to get ready now by staying informed…listen to local authorities…check emergency supplies…and review their emergency plan”.

At this point mid-Michigan appears to be at the far outer reaches of the effects of the storm, but rain and some wind could approach Michigan.  Stay tuned to 6News weather experts for the latest as we head into the week.

However, travel and commerce toward the East will likely be impacted through mid-week.
