The American Red Cross is responding to flooding in Greeley that happened on June 4, 2014.
The Red Cross is providing individualized assistance for families whose homes were affected by flooding.
In response to rising flood waters this week, the Red Cross Northern Colorado Chapter strategically positioned supplies and placed volunteer workers on standby in preparation for opening evacuation centers or shelters, if needed. Flooding through June 4 did not reach the threshold of mandatory evacuations or affect a quantity of homes that would require opening a shelter, however the Red Cross will continue to assess needs and is prepared to increase its response if the need arises.
Red Cross preparedness volunteers also canvassed neighborhoods in Greeley distributing flood safety and preparedness information in English and Spanish. The public can also download the free Red Cross Flood App for smart phones from their phone's app store. Find out more at http://www.redcross.org/prepare/mobile-apps.
