METROPOLIS, Ill - As the city of Brookport begins to recover and regain power from yesterday's tornadoes, a local church has been declared a Red Cross shelter, and volunteers are not hesitant to lend a helping hand.

Organizers need basic necessities more than anything: undergarments and diapers. The refrigerators are overflowing from donations.

The Red Cross Shelter at First Baptist Church in Metropolis will be open for those who need it through the week.

Local 6 is also teaming up with the Red Cross. All donations will go to Local Red Cross Shelters.
