DALLAS – FORT WORTH — The American Red Cross DFW is assisting people impacted by severe weather that occurred late Tuesday night. The storm produced damaging winds which ripped roofs off multiple homes in the East Arlington area.
Three apartment complexes on Pioneer Parkway had multiple buildings sustain damage resulting in a combined 80 plus families requiring Red Cross assistance including emergency lodging and feeding.
Overnight, Red Cross volunteers began working with apartment management and city officials to identify and provide assistance for those affected.
The Red Cross is providing casework for those significantly impacted to assist with immediate needs, including emergency lodging, food, health and mental health services and more. Caseworkers will continue to work with residents to provide assistance and help connect them with additional community resources.
Following the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Red Cross is continuing to do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by wearing masks, social distancing and, when possible, using virtual means to provide assistance.
Anyone impacted by the severe weather and in need of assistance is encouraged to call the Red Cross at 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
