Dexter tornado cleanup continues
DEXTER, Mich. (AP) — The American Red Cross says hundreds of volunteers turned out to help people whose homes were damaged or destroyed by a tornado in Washtenaw County.
Spokeswoman Jenni Hawes says the village of Dexter is quickly getting cleaned up. The Red Cross moved its services Saturday to Creekside Intermediate School, which is more centrally located.
A tornado damaged more than 100 homes Thursday and destroyed at least 13. The Red Cross no longer will offer an overnight shelter. No one had spent the last two nights at a school.
The Red Cross is offering food, water and counseling. Hawes says the shock from the tornado is wearing off and people are realizing just "how bad it could have been." There were no serious injuries.
