KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The Plains states were slammed by heavy storms over the weekend, and cleanup is just beginning from the huge tornadoes that went along with them. The Red Cross of West Michigan is ready to help, says spokesperson Kelly Hudson.
She tells us it has volunteers on standby to send to the affected areas, if they're needed.
Also, Hudson is reminding people that the Red Cross has a tornado app. Available for IPhone and Android, the free app is simply called "Red Cross Tornado." It offers up to the minute information on tornado activity locally, as well as a flash light feature, and it can also be used as a warning siren. Just search for "Red Cross Tornado."
