Red Cross calls for blood donors

The Red Cross is appealing for blood donors after recent winter storms.

It says the storms forced thousands of donors to cancel blood donations and that the January supply has fallen to the lowest in a decade.

The Red Cross is urging all eligible blood donors to help boost its blood supply back up to sufficient levels.

The organization is concerned severe winter weather and a possible predicted East Coast storm that could make the situation even worse.
