Over the past several days, 95 confirmed tornadoes and violent storms have ripped through 11 Midwestern and Southern states, leaving a path of destruction and fatalities, as well as dozens of communities without power, food and water.

If you or someone you know were affected by these storms, please reach out to American Red Cross now. Here are ways that you can get help now.

The Red Cross is on the ground, standing shoulder to shoulder with impacted families providing for their immediate needs such as food, shelter and emotional support. Your support is urgently needed. Make a gift to Red Cross Disaster Relief today.

Although they have hundreds of meals to deliver, cots to set up, warm blankets to hand out, and emotional support to provide before families can return to their daily lives, we can do it with your help, because you are at the heart of our disaster relief.
