REDDING, Calif. - The Red Cross has set up a shelter at the Shasta County Fairgrounds in Anderson for anyone affected by the recent snow storm.

Red Cross volunteers say many of the people they are seeing are still without power and heat.

Many are not staying overnight, but they are coming in to get out of the cold and get something to eat or hot coffee to stay warm.

Red Cross volunteer Rose Nobili said Saturday, "We had probably about eight people spend the night last night."

The power is coming back on," she said, "so people are leaving."

"Currently, we only have two, and they're from Millville, that are staying here.," she elaborated.

Volunteers from the Salvation Army were also on site Saturday serving breakfast and lunch to about 70 or 80 individuals who could not cook in their homes. The shelter will remain open on Saturday night for anyone who has need of it.

They expect to close Sunday at noon unless needs change.
