Irving, TX (PRWEB) April 16, 2012
Cash Store has coordinated with the DFW chapter of the Red Cross to donate $2,500 in the wake of the destructive storms that occurred on April 3, 2012. North Texas residents are encouraged to still contribute by making donations online or through their mobile devices by texting REDCROSS to 90999.
According to the National Weather Service,17 confirmed tornadoes touched down in sporadic waves – leveling some homes while leaving others untouched. Tornado watch sirens sounded throughout North Texas as hundreds of flights were canceled at DFW and Love Field airports. Because the storms occurred at mid-day, many people captured videos detailing the destructive paths of these tornadoes. Large hail was also a contributing factor to the property damage.
The cities of Arlington, Forney and Lancaster were hardest hit with tornado winds that measured between 111-165 mph. Approximately 650 homes were destroyed and numerous injuries have been reported. Temporary shelters have been set up in designated cities as first responders assess needs.
Last month, deadly storms tore through the Midwest devastating towns like Harrisburg, Ill., where poignant before-and-after images of demolished homes and businesses spoke volumes. As members of that community, Cash Store supported local and statewide relief efforts by partnering with the Salvation Army, United Way and Architecture for Humanity.
