LifeSouth Community Blood Centers has an emergency need for all blood types due to this week's severe winter storm.



LifeSouth closed many of its donation centers and cancelled planned blood drives in Georgia and Alabama on Monday due to the ice and snow in those states. As a result, the agency is now in need of all blood types to be shared across the region.

Florida was spared the worst of the storm so LifeSouth is asking residents to make donations as soon as possible.
