MILWAUKEE -- Staff at the Blood Center of Wisconsin packed up blood Monday to send to Texas.
There is an urgent need for blood donations as flood waters from Harvey keep rising.
"Blood drives have been canceled in Texas. Donor centers have been closed and that's causing a huge sense of urgency and devastation when it comes to the blood supply in some parts of Texas, said Fay Spano with the Blood Center of Wisconsin."We are flying our blood out tonight, but because we can't fly into Houston, Dallas will be the hub for blood donations."
