Red Cross Provides Applications in Person

Lafayette, Louisiana – After enduring weeks of frustration, trying to apply for Red Cross cash
assistance by telephone, evacuees are now able to apply in person. Thousands
of people have applied already in the Lafayette area, prompting the Red
Cross to close some offices now that it says they aren't as busy. The
Acadiana chapter in Scott, however, is still taking applications. Reporter
Beth Fertig visited the office and produced this piece.
