Blood Supplies Are Critically Low

The Red Cross says blood supplies in Eastern Carolina are critically low, in part because of collection disruption during Tropical Storm Hanna.

The Red Cross reports less than a one-day supply of many blood types in Eastern Carolina.

The Onslow County scheduled a blood drive Friday from 10-2 at the Jacksonville Commons Recreation Center. To find a blood drive near you, click on the related link below.

Nationally, the blood supply is also short because of the lost collection days from Faye, Gustav and Ike.
