The American Red Cross continues to help people affected by the ongoing severe weather, providing shelter, food and support as those impacted by the storms figure out what to do next.

Red Cross shelters are still open in Oklahoma and Texas. You can see how the Red Cross is helping. Red Cross workers have been providing shelter and food, cleaning supplies, health and mental health services, helping with damage assessment and meeting with families to help plan their next steps. Emergency response vehicles are traveling through the affected areas, bringing people food and relief supplies and Resource Centers are also open where people can come to be helped by multiple organizations. In the days and weeks ahead, the Red Cross will also provide health services and emotional support as residents begin to recover from the storms.

Parts of the country could still see bad storms and the Red Cross is monitoring the situation to respond if needed. People should download the new Red Cross Emergency app to receive safety alerts about storms in their area.
