The Red Cross, community and government partners continue to support area residents evacuated from their homes after dam breeches and flooding in the Great Lakes Bay area. Midland and Saginaw County locations are available this evening for people who cannot stay in their homes due to widespread flooding and power outages. At the shelters, residents will receive warm and safe lodging, comfort items, toiletries, food, information, and emotional support.
Other communities being served include Arenac, Gladwin, Iosco, Ogemaw, and Saginaw counties, where Red Cross teams are in the field surveying damaged homes and working with local emergency management to assess the impact of the flooding and additional needs in the affected communities.
