DELMONT, S.D. (AP) - The Red Cross is moving its Delmont tornado relief operations to the town from nearby Tripp.

Electricity and water service have been restored in Delmont, so the Red Cross is moving its operations center to New Hope Lutheran Church in Delmont and setting up feeding operations at the old fire hall in coordination with the Salvation Army.

More than 2,500 meals and snacks have been served since the Sunday morning tornado that injured nine people and damaged dozes of structures in the community of about 200 people.

More than 30 Red Cross volunteers are in the area.
