NNL-FloodandRecoveryTHUNDER BAY – Shaw TV’s Sarah McArthur interviews Red Cross Communications person David St. Georges about the situation in the East End.

The Red Cross has set up their information booth outside the St. Paul’s Church in the East End.

The goal of the Red Cross right now is to work with the City and to assist people in getting the help that they need.
