American Red Cross Responds to Floods and Tornadoes in Central United States
Date:6/9/2008

Relief efforts underway throughout Midwest, but also in West Virginia

WASHINGTON, June 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Storms and heavy rainfall have caused serious flash flooding in already saturated areas of the central United States. In response, the American Red Cross has mobilized relief workers to six states in the devastated areas. Floods are among the most frequent and costly natural disasters in terms of human hardship and economic loss.

Relief efforts are already underway in Indiana, Nebraska, Iowa, and Wisconsin where the Red Cross is providing for the immediate needs of the tornado and flood victims, including food and shelter; with workers poised and ready to respond in Illinois and Michigan as the situation develops. West Virginia is also seeing substantial flooding and Red Cross workers are responding there, as well. Nearly 1100 Red Cross workers, including more than 900 volunteers, are deployed throughout the widespread area.

Red Cross shelters are open throughout the affected states to give displaced families a place where they can sleep, get vital information about available assistance, have a hot meal, talk with a mental health worker or meet with a health services worker about any of their healthcare needs. Meanwhile, Red Cross disaster assessment workers are preparing to scour the areas, once they are safely accessible, to determine the extent of the widespread devastation. Thirty Emergency Response Vehicles are also outfitted to deliver food, water, comfort and hygiene supplies and will be mobilized within the communities where needs are apparent.

"It is with the help of the American public that we are able to respond to the disasters in the Midwest, as well as the disasters that occur every day in local communities across the country that you may not hear about," said Joe Becker, senior vice president, Disaster Services for the American Red Cross.
