YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – We’ve heard a number of Americans were hurt yesterday when terrorists attacked the airport and train stations in Brussels.
In the U.S., workers with the American Red Cross are working to help re-connect families caught up in natural or man-made disasters. With phone service and other forms of communication disrupted during yesterday’s attacks, contacting loved ones could prove very difficult.
However Red Cross agencies around the world are cooperating to help family members at least check the status of their relatives and friends.
“Right now the Belgian Red Cross has opened a ‘safe and well’ website, where individuals who are affected by the attacks can go and register themselves as ‘safe’ and also register individuals who might be missing,” Jessica Tischler with the American Red Cross said.
