MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The American Red Cross is opening two emergency aid stations to help residents of north Minneapolis recover from a devastating tornado.

The stations will be located at Willard Park and Jordan Park. The stations open Wednesday and will run through Friday from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

Each Red Cross station will provide snacks, lunch and water and will offer health and mental health services. There also will be caseworkers on hand to provide information about disaster recovery.

The Red Cross also will continue to canvass affected neighborhoods providing food, water and other relief supplies. The North Commons Recreation Center, a temporary Red Cross shelter, is also open in north Minneapolis.

So far, the Red Cross has served more than 13,000 meals since the tornado struck north Minneapolis on May 22.

    Gee, The Salvation Army was there from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm starting the day of the tornado through Memorial Day, feeding 3 meals a day. Many of those meals were hot meals plus a choice of drinks. How come there was no mention on the website?
    What is the love fest between WCCO and the Red Cross? Does management have spouses in the Red Cross? Is this a paid advertisement disguised as a news item? Why does WCCO ignore other organizations?
    Makes one question all their news coverage. Do they favor certain people and organizations with no objectivity?
    Perhaps Don Shelby retired because he had standards and WCCO lost their standards.

    Don’t expect federal aid from Obama, and here’s why… Since Obama is controlled by the Bilderbergers, Obama is an enemy to We-The-People; because, this is their End Game Plan…. Obama and the Bilderberger’s plan concerning false promises of flood and tornado disaster federal aid relief is this,… “there won’t be any;” because, the Obama plan is to force people to live in their newly refurbished FEMA Shelter/Prison Camps. Once people go to live in these FEMA Shelter Camps, they will loose their constitutional rights to life, liberty, and property, and then they won’t ever come out again. This is another one of the Bilderberg End-Game Plans, and it will work like a charm. Not only will the Bilderberger’s use HAARP to create Volcanic Eruptions, Earthquakes, Storms, and Tornado tragedies, but they are needlessly killing thousands of American Citizens, to force Prison Camp Shelters upon us; and, isn’t that a violation of our Declaration of Independence, and our USA Constitution; and, isn’t this domestic terrorism, and that means that Obama is our domestic terrorist who is conspiring with the Shadow Bilderberg Illuminati Government against We-The-People. So, don’t vote for any GOP or Democrat or Obama as candidate for president, we must vote for a WRITE-IN candidate who opposes this Bilderberg End Game Plan.
