Minneapolis, MN, June 16, 2014–The American Red Cross is responding to flooding in the International Falls, MN, area. Additional relief workers and supplies, including a second mobile feeding truck, are deployed out to affected areas to help those in need. 

"It's going to get ugly up here before it gets better," says Tony Guerra who is on-the-ground leading the Red Cross relief effort on the US-Canadian border.

Red Cross mobile feeding on Saturday served approximately 70 meals to people working to hold back the flood waters in Koochiching County. Also (pictured below), Red Cross relief workers providing emergency aid  to people sandbagging at City Beach in Ranier. 

People can download the Red Cross free Flood App, which has useful information and tips about responding before, during and after flooding: http://www.redcross.org/prepare/mobile-apps/flood.

Also, people who want to help can go to www.redcross.org and make a donation that supports Red Cross relief work for disasters both big and small.
