Flood Waters Rising

April 22, 2013

Throughout parts of the Midwest, small towns to larger cities are facing the real dangers of rising flood waters. To support local communities, American Red Cross responders are urging residents to listen to their local officials for guidance on evacuations. In several cities, we are supporting sheltering and sandbagging efforts by providing food, water and snacks to support the community. As the waters rise, our services are expanding.

In our next video, from Utica, Illinois, Jackie Nelson shares what she is seeing. This lovely city had recently rebuilt from a tornado and now they are racing against rising waters.
