Red Cross helping storm affected residents

by

KAUKAUNA, WI (WTAQ) - A shelter re-opened Saturday morning at Kaukauna High School for anyone whose power is still out following Friday's storms.

The American Red Cross of Outagamie County opened the shelter at 7 a.m. and will close at 11 a.m.

Over 13,000 WE Energies customers in Outagamie County are without power, as of 8:30 a.m. Saturday, in addition to about 3,500 customers in Winnebago County.

Around 1,500 WPS customers in Green Bay have no electricity.

"We're stocked with snacks, water, hot cocoa, even coloring books for the kids to play with," American Red Cross Volunteer, Sharon Holt told FOX 11.

"They can come in here recharge their cellphones and laptops. That is really their only way of communication with their families. They need to let them know they're safe."

"We will for sure be open until 11:00 this morning for those affected by yesterdays storms. Even if you need a hug, we're here," Holt said.

Showers will also be available, along with information about keeping food safe during power outages.

Red Cross officials also say that they will open two feeding stations at noon Saturday.

They will provide a hot lunch/dinner for people affected by the storms.

The feeding stations are at the Wautoma Courthouse (outside) 209 S. St. Marie Street in Wautoma and the Plainfield Fire Station, 114 W. Clark Street in Plainfield.
