MARSHFIELD, Wis. (WSAU) - Last week's snowstorm has created a major shortage of blood.

The Bloodcenter of Wisconsin said lots of appointments for blood donations were canceled on Thursday. As a result, the center expects a shortfall of over a-thousand units over end of the year. All blood types are needed, but officials say there’s a particular need for “O”-Negative – the universal type that’s used in emergency rooms and med-flight helicopters.

The Blood Center also has a critical need for platelets, which are used to help cancer and trauma patients recover from life-threatening injuries. The Blood Center serves 56 hospitals in Wisconsin.

There's a blood drive today at Saint Clares Hospital in Weston from 9 am to 2 pm. No appointment is needed, but Vicki Bohman says you should show up ready to give blood. Bohman says you should eat a good meal, get plenty of rest and plan to be gone for about an hour. You will need a valid driver's license to donate blood.

For more information or to sign up for a donation time, call the Bloodcenter at 1-888-310-7555.
