There is a call out for blood if you are in the Reno/Tahoe area. They're looking for type O positive blood, all negative blood types and AB positive plasma donors. You can contact United Blood Services for more information. I believe they were extending donation times. DH offered to drive up there to donate, but we have a class first thing in the morning. brokenheart.gif My heart really goes out to everyone that was there.

I was so sad to read the news this morning. Seven people died on the tarmac, 2 at the hospital, and over 50 were transported to the hospital. Many more took private vehicles to be treated for minor injuries. They were still looking for blood donations this morning, but I'm not sure if they'd been able to get enough donations by now.
