Red Cross volunteers Mike and Joyce Evans wrap Alicha Rogers and her son Ke’von Burton of Portland, OR in a Linus Blanket. The Sacramento Sierra Chapter of the American Red Cross responded to a call early tonight from Roger Muckel, manager of the Sacramento Greyhound Bus terminal. Rogers had left Las Vegas yesterday, headed for Portland, and landed in Sacramento. The California Highway Patrol near Redding were not allowing travel any further north due to the storm. Two busloads of travelers were brought to the Sacramento terminal. Many of them spent a cold night at the terminal. Muckel said they were brought to Sacramento’s bus station due to safety reasons for their passengers. The Red Cross delivered over 25 blankets for the travelers. Rogers and her son will be home in Portland as soon as weather conditions permit.
