United Way Cuts Red Cross Funding

Jun 7, 2012

The United Way of Greater Dayton will cut funding to the Dayton area Red Cross by 76 percent for next fiscal year. And as WYSO's Emily McCord reports, the Red Cross is appealing that decision.

Today's winter storm is making some travel treacherous, and with gusty winds in the forecast Wednesday, there's a potential for power outages across the Miami Valley. Tom Foder with the Dayton chapter of the American Red Cross says when that happens, it's important to take safety precautions. Foder warns that using generators or other heating sources can be dangerous if not used correctly.
