The Red Cross shelter provides a warm and safe place for storm victims to stay.

At the request of Craighead County Sheriff Marty Boyd, the American Red Cross has moved the emergency shelter for those affected by last night’s storms from the First Baptist Church in Caraway to the following location:

  • Caraway Senior Center
  • 401 North New York, Caraway, Arkansas
  • “The shelter opened last night soon after the storm passed through at the First Baptist Church to provide an accessible location for the neighborhoods around the church hit by the storm,” stated American Red Cross in Arkansas Information Officer Brigette Williams. “With daylight providing better awareness of the extensive damage around the church and concern for residents’ safety, a new shelter location has been opened.”
