The American Red Cross and Ocracoke School Beta Club and community blood drive scheduled for this week in the Community Center was canceled due to high winds and rough seas that suspended ferry operations Tuesday and part of Wednesday.

Bryson Schmidt, the drive coordinator for the Red Cross, said the new dates are from noon to 6 p.m. Nov. 30 and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 1.
