Red Cross ready to give shelter to flood victims

TERRE HAUTE — The American Red Cross Wabash Valley Chapter office is serving as a shelter site for those who may be flooded out of their homes. The office is at 700 S. Third St. in Terre Haute.

Other sites could be opened in other locations based upon need.

Individuals or families whose homes have been flooded or may be flooded throughout the week and do not have a place to stay are urged to contact the Red Cross at 812-232-3393 or come to the chapter office.

As of about 3 p.m. today, no one was in need of shelter, said Carol Stevens, Red Cross executive director.  

“We received several calls today. We’ll wait and see what transpires once evening arrives,” she said.

The Red Cross was out delivering meals to those doing sandbagging in various parts of the county, including Dresser and southwest Vigo County.

The agency has been working with area emergency management directors to reach out to families whose homes have been flooded.
