    The American Red Cross will open a multi-agency resource center in Van for the victims of Sunday's tornado.

    Two people were killed and more than three dozen were injured Sunday when an EF-3 tornado with winds as high as 140 mph destroyed or substantially damaged more than 120 homes.

    The resource center is designed to be a one-stop-shop for residents recovering from the storm.

    "Families can meet with agencies such as the American Red Cross, The Salvation Army, Texas Baptist Men, Victim Relief Ministries, Christian Aid Ministries-Disaster Response, Lions Club, Health & Home Services and others," the Red Cross said in a news release Wednesday.

    The resource center is located at the Van Community Center at 310 Chestnut and will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday.
