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.
