Red Cross in need of blood donations. (Source: WOIO)

The storm that dumped several feet of snow on the east coast over the weekend is having a ripple effect on the Red Cross. Blood donations
are way down nationwide but the need is way up. They’re calling it an emergency situation.

“Since January first more than three hundred blood drives have been canceled because of inclement weather  and this weekend was just
the caper,” says Jim McIntyre.

Red Cross Regional Manager of Communications, Jim McIntyre says during the winter months blood donors tend to decrease but, when the weather takes an even worse turn it depletes an already low supply making it even more critical for people who can to donate.
