"Red Cross Evacuated After Bomb Threat"

"A bomb threat has put some Savannah Red Cross employees on edge. Police say an angry woman called in Saturday and told employees she was a Hurricane Katrina victim. She was upset that the Red Cross had done nothing for her and said there was a bomb in the building.

The Red Cross immediately evacuated staff, volunteers and donors while police searched the premises. About an hour later, after the search turned up nothing of concern, everyone was allowed back in.

"It's surprising," said the group's Dean Smith. "I mean we try as hard as we can to provide the level of service that everybody expects. It's surprised me."

If you know who's responsible for making the bomb threat, you can call CrimeStoppers anonymously at 234.2020."
