JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The American Red Cross said they are available to help in every natural disaster.

They said all the roofs that have caved from the weight of the ice.

So Region 8 News asked, Does this county as a natural disaster and can the Red Cross help.

Jody Carter with the American Red Cross said the answer is both yes and no.

"If folks have sustained damage and it's in the minor range, we would first encourage them to contact their home owners insurance if they have it," said Carter. "But we can also look case by case basis to see if folks living conditions have been impacted and see what we can do to help."

Carter said their focus is only residential and not commercial structures.
