Red Cross offers website to assist with Boston Marathon tragedy

The following press release was issued Monday by Sheri Timmers, executive director of the American Red Cross of Logan County:


Our hearts go out to all those in Boston dealing with this tragedy and our thoughts are with all of those injured.

Right now, if you are in Boston or have loved ones there, knowing people are safe is the best way to bring peace of mind.

It is important for people to connect with one another. Go to to list loved ones as safe if you have heard from loved ones there.

Remind loved ones in Boston that text is often the best way to get through to each other in an emergency.  

If people want to help, the best thing they can do right now is keep the people of Boston in their thoughts and post the status of loved ones in Boston on our Safe and Well site.

Right now, the Red Cross has what it needs to support this event.

Thank you,

Sheri Timmers
