(KFVS) -

The Southern Missouri Region of the American Red Cross has helped at least 45 people after disasters from March 9-15, including helping a Bollinger County family.

According to Red Cross, there's been 10 single family fires and two multifamily fires had Red Cross volunteers responding almost daily. This includes seven people assisted after a single family fire in Bollinger County.

Less than one-third of the individuals had insurance on their property in the cases across 10 counties in the 40-county service area.

The people affected were provided money for shelter, clothes, food and in some cases replacement of medicines and eye glasses
