The New York City area's blood banks are facing a shortage after this week's snow storm. 

"No donations came in on Tuesday," said Andrea Cefarelli, Executive Director of Donor Recruitment at the New York Blood Center. "Based on the cancellations, we're collecting about half of what is normal."

According to Cefarelli, the NYBC was able to plan ahead and work with local hospitals to make sure they had enough supplies.
