Winter weather has taken its toll on the American Red Cross blood supply. Nearly 70 blood drives have been canceled in the River Valley region since the first winter storm on Dec. 6.
Lindsay English, communications manager for the Red Cross, said the canceled drives equate to nearly 1,800 units of blood lost.
"This has been one of the harder winters that we have experienced recently," English said. "When schools and businesses close, we have to shut down as well."
