CORPUS CHRISTI - The Coastal Bend Blood Center at 209 N. Padre Island Drive in Corpus Christi says many people have stopped in this morning to donate blood after hearing of the massive fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas.
You can stop in at that location until 5pm. The mobile blood bank will also be at Miller High School, just off Leopard Street, until 4pm today.
They're in need of type AB and O donors. Donations of all types are always accepted to help replenish supplies to local hospitals.
