Red Cross: storm hurt blood reserves

Saturday - 2/15/2014, 4:10am  ET

WASHINGTON -- The miserable weather has done more than tie up traffic and close schools. According to The American Red Cross, severe winter weather throughout January and into February forced them to cancel more than 1,000 Red Cross blood drives in 34 states and Washington, D.C., resulting in about 35,000 uncollected blood and platelet donations.

According to officials, the Red Cross must collect on average about 15,000 units of blood every day for patients at hospitals and transfusion centers across the country.

Right now, there is an urgent need for type O negative, O positive, B negative and A negative blood.

    Here is a list of local blood drives:
