Donna Duvin is the Executive Director of the Washtenaw-Lenawee Chapter of the American Red Cross. She says Red Cross volunteers came out to assistant the residents of the Alpha Gamma Delta sorority.

Duvin says the Red Cross did assist seven students with clothing and bedding replacement. She says all of the students did have housing for the night last night, but some may need housing placement for longer. She says the Red Cross is monitoring the situation and is ready to help any student in need.
