Five disaster responders from the Connecticut Red Cross are being deployed to the Midwest to assist in tornado aftermath efforts.

The responders are assisting both in-person and virtually.

"The Red Cross in Connecticut is assessing the needs of our neighbors in the Midwest and will provide support as needed," a spokesperson said.

People who want to help can donate blood or make a donation on their website.

Tornadoes and severe weather caused catastrophic damage across multiple states late Friday, killing at least six people overnight as a storm system tore through a candle factory in Kentucky, an Amazon facility in Illinois and a nursing home in Arkansas. The Kentucky governor said he feared dozens more could be dead.
