The American Red Cross in Nebraska and SE Iowa Cross has mobilized volunteers, supplies and resources to provide help to those who have been affected by the flooding.
Our community is experiencing historic flooding and the American Red Cross is on the ground helping those affected. The Red Cross is currently focused on shelter operations, providing a safe place to stay, a place to sleep, hot meals and referrals to partner agencies to those who have been displaced from their home due to the flooding.
The shelters will remain open as long as necessary. In the coming days and weeks, when conditions stabilize, damage assessments and distribution of supplies will be the priorities as we help clients move into the recovery stage of this disaster.
The lasting impact of the flooding is unknown, but will certainly be extensive.
