NATO will soon be meeting for a summit in Chicago, and tension from the event could be the reason for a possible evacuation. The Red Cross of Milwaukee was put on notice that their services may be needed, because the summit "may create unrest or another national security incident." What do you think is going on here?
CBS 2 News has obtained a copy of a Red Cross e-mail sent to volunteers in the Milwaukee area. It said the NATO summit "may create unrest or another national security incident. The American Red Cross in southeastern Wisconsin has been asked to place a number of shelters on standby in the event of evacuation of Chicago."
According to a chapter spokesperson, the evacuation plan is not theirs alone.
"Our direction has come from the City of Chicago and the Secret Service," she said.
