The Red Cross announced Wednesday that all of its tornado disaster services for families in Bartow and Gordan counties will be headquarted at the Red Cross’ Northwest Georgia Chapter in Rome.

“Though the emergency phase of our response has ended, the Red Cross is not going away,” Red Cross’ Georgia CEO, Terri Badour-Duckett, said in a statement.

Anyone who still needs help can call 706-291-6648. More than 150 Red Cross disaster responders have supported tornado and sever weather relief efforts in Georgia since Jan. 30. That means assisting about 100 families in Bartow and Gordon counties, so far.
