Ice relief efforts on hold
    January 5 2010 by BR staff

    Disaster relief work in the western part of North Carolina has been put on hold.

    Gaylon Moss, disaster relief director for North Carolina Baptist Men, sent out a mass e-mail today alerting workers of the halt in work in Watauga County.

    The e-mail credited with inclement weather with the work stoppage. There was a concern that workers would not be safe if they continued because of the dangers of snow, ice and temperatures.

    As of Jan. 2, Moss said 20 families had been helped by approximately 50 volunteers.

    When work resumes, Moss asked that chainsaw operators and those that can clear brush volunteer.

    WRAL in Raleigh was reporting that an arctic air mass is expected to remain in place across North Carolina through the workweek.
