Red Cross disaster team went into the heavily affected area Monday evening to determine what help could be provided immediately to those affected. By the end of the evening it was determined that 6 homes were determined unlivable with an additional 5 homes determined to have suffered major damage. Red Cross opened 3 support cases for a total of 5 people, providing immediate non-livable assistance for 5 and temporary lodging for 4. Additional need will likely be discovered today as volunteers work with those hit hardest.
People affected by the flooding and hail who are in need of assistance can call the Red Cross client casework phone at 719-785-2768. Please leave a message and a caseworker will return the call.
