BILLINGS -

The Treasure State is ready to pitch in to help those in need in Oklahoma.

Montana Red Cross Disaster Director Colleen Tone said, in a statement, that they are watching the situation closely, and their team members are ready to go to Oklahoma, if they are needed. According to the same statement, Red Cross officials in Oklahoma have already deployed almost 30 response vehicles to hand out food and relief supplies, as well as setting up six shelters.

Here in Billings, there are a couple of things to do to help out the victims. Those wanting to help out can call 1-800-ARC-MONT (1-800-272-6668) to donate money to the Red Cross, or text the word "REDCROSS" to 90999 to donate $10 per text.

In addition, heights frozen yogurt store Cherry Berry announced they are donating 10% of their sales Tuesday to the cause.

    Street Lights Needed

    Streets that run for several blocks, without a single street light. It is a dark reality many residents throughout the Magic City face when the sun goes down. Leo Robinson lives on Monad Rd., east of 24th Street. He said if street lights were placed on Monad, safety for everyone would improve. Terry Smith, City Traffic Engineer, said the city is more than willing to work with anyone, on any street, which lacks street lights.

    Hundreds of Hells Angels are coming to Cody for a national meeting this week. The motorcycle club apparently likes the northwest Wyoming town. They held their world run there in 2006. Police presence is heavy in Cody now.
