Red Cross offers free Thanksgiving meal to tornado victims

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTIC BEACH, N.C. -

The American Red Cross offered a free Thanksgiving meal to those affected by Tuesday night's tornado in Carteret County.

The twister ruined dozens of people's holiday plans in Morehead City and Atlantic Beach.

The Red Cross says it tried to help by providing a free meal of turkey, ham, crab cakes, and more at the DoubleTree by Hilton from 12 PM to 6 PM on Thursday.

"Many clients, obviously, have been displaced from their homes for the holiday. We wanted them to still be able to enjoy a nice holiday meal with all the trimmings," said Victoria Kling with the American Red Cross. "We know that many are working hard toward their own recovery in terms of already looking into what the next steps are."

The Red Cross said it assisted fifteen families displaced by the tornado.

    A nice firm handshake has long been a mark of good manners and elevated social skills, but it's also a very germy way to greet your fellow humans.
