Colorado Red Cross Helping Tornado Victims

· May 9, 2011, 4:13 pm

One measure of the severity of the tornadoes that hit the South in April, is that Red Cross chapters from every state sent volunteers to help.  Another is that many are still there.  About 30 Colorado Red Cross volunteers are still helping tornado victims.  Patricia Billinger, of the Red Cross chapter in Denver, is back from her assignment in North Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. She tells Colorado Public Radio's Mike Lamp about what she saw, and the people she met.
