And also, if you want to donate to help the victims, always go to a site that you know is legit. NEVER go to a link that is in an email sent to you. The Red Cross does not send out mass emails asking for help. If you get an email like this with a link, the link will actually take you to a fake website and you will be giving your money to scammers.

Everyone, be careful!
