As the water continues to rise, many area families are being forced to evacuate their homes. In response, the Red Cross will be opening another shelter in the city of Macomb tonight. The shelter will be located at the Wesley United Methodist Church, 1212 W. Calhoun. The shelter will be ready to receive flood victims at approximately 9:00 pm.
Shelters can also be found on the "shelters" tab in the Red Cross Tornado App (available for DROID or Apple) or by visiting http://www.redcross.org/find-help/shelter. Anyone needing Red Cross assistance should go to this location or call (309) 837-1594.
