COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The number of lives lost from Hurricane Sandy now stands at more than 110.

On day nine of recovery, hundreds of thousands remain without electricity, while thousands remain homeless and finding gasoline remains hit-or-miss.

All while another storm, also packing a serious punch, heads along the east coast.

All this devastation has left many of us wondering what we can do to help.

Some residents at the Green Leaf apartment complex in Phenix City decided to take action Wednesday by donating blood to the American Red Cross. They say the best ways to lend a hand-- is to lend an arm

Russell County Sherriff Heath Taylor and his deputies were among the donors, along with Phenix City Fire Captain Marc Wells and his team of firefighters.
