The American Red Cross wants to make sure it has met with as many Picher-area tornado victims as possible.

So far, Red Cross caseworkers have met with 140 families to discuss their needs and receive financial assistance for things such as clothing, shoes, and bedding.

On Friday, Red Cross volunteers will be going from house to house in Picher, Welch, and Quapaw to leave information for homeowners about contacting the Red Cross.

The number for tornado victims to call if they have not already met with the Red Cross is 1-800-494-0275.

The Red Cross will continue to serve meals in Picher throughout the weekend.
