BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The American Red Cross says another 122 people have spent the night in shelters the organization has set up in western New York to aid people displaced by the massive lake-effect snow storm.

Red Cross officials in Buffalo say they’re operating six shelters in Erie, Genesee and Chautauqua counties. The organization has 76 volunteers and staffers who are providing cots, blankets, foot, water and other support at locations across western New York.

The American Red Cross so far has aided more than 420 people since the storm hit Lake Erie’s eastern shore starting on Monday. The total includes 122 people who spent Thursday night at shelters.

The shelters have been set up at fire stations, churches, schools and community centers.
