A gas explosion at a jail in the Panhandle Wednesday has killed two inmates and injured more than 100 people, including officers. Local hospitals are calling for additional blood to treat the injured, and OneBlood is urging all eligible donors to please donate as soon as possible.

To add to the situation, severe storms and flooding in the Panhandle are making blood collections difficult in parts of North Florida, and the blood center has had to suspend some of its operations in that area.
