American Red Cross spokeswoman Cynthia Shaw said the agency was providing hotel housing for one family and food and clothing for two other families, for a total of six people. Others returned home.

Silhouettes could be seen in windows lit with Christmas lights Sunday afternoon, while other windows were shrouded in plastic where glass had broken.
