Jeffery Biggs and Barbara Behling of the American Red Cross:

The hustle of the flood disaster relief operation in Wisconsin came to a short pause Thursday afternoon around 3 p.m. as the Disaster Relief Operations Headquarters in Madison was placed under a tornado warning forcing Red Crossers to huddle in the designated “safe zone.”

After the danger had passed the Red Crossers resumed their job of helping the people of Wisconsin recover from the tragic flooding that had blanketed the southern third of the state earlier in the week.
