Dozens of deadly tornadoes touched down the weekend of December 10-12, 2021 across multiple states in the center of the country, leaving behind considerable damage and heartbreak.
More than 450 American Red Cross disaster workers from all over the country are currently working with our partners in Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas and Missouri, focused on providing shelter, meals, comfort and support in the face of the deadliest tornado outbreak in a decade.
With thousands of homes affected and damage spanning some 250 miles, this response is a team effort. Massive disasters like these tornadoes leave behind an incredible amount of need and no single organization can do it alone.
