The Red Cross opened shelters during last week's major storm and on Sunday they set up shop in Tehama County once again, giving residents dealing with the aftermath of the storm a little relief.

The Red Cross was at Durango RV Park providing individual assistance for residents impacted by the storm and passing out supplies. Red Cross volunteers also spent time driving to different locations in Red Bluff distributing supplies to affected residents.

Red Cross officials say the need for volunteers is much bigger than they originally anticipated. Liz Ford, of the American Red Cross said "we're looking at how we are going to continue the effort". She said they are currently in the process of how and where they will be to meet the needs of residents over the next few days.

Those who weren't affected by the storm made it a point to help out. It's times like these that we get a painful reminder that the Red Cross is in need of volunteers. People can apply to be a volunteer or make a financial donation at
