There has been some confusion arising out of registering with Red Cross.
Mix news has been told by the Red Cross that registration continues to be open and will remain open. The organization is requesting that people who have registered be on the look-out for an incoming email from them which will confirm their registration and give them a registration number.
The Red Cross is dealing with a high number of these emails and is sending them out in batches. Spokespeople have told Mix news that they will get to everyone eventually, but to have patience.
