American Red Cross Helps Colorado Flood Victims

American Red Cross Helps Colorado Flood Victims

Two teams from the South Dakota Red Cross are making their way to Colorado in hopes of helping the thousands who have lost their homes and even family members in the massive flooding.

The groups are hoping to help families and those first responders in any way they can.

The volunteers will also be handing out food and water to those in need, trying to make anything easier on the people who are suffering.

Thousands of homes have been destroyed as a result of the flooding in Colorado. Four people are confirmed dead, while thousands are missing or waiting to be rescued.

Rescue workers in Colorado have been working hard over the weekend air lifting many people to safety.

Officials with the Red Cross say if you are missing any loved ones in the area or cannot get in contact with them, you can use their database for missing people.

You’ll find the database on the website safeandwell.org. There you can find a list of people or even enter the name of the person you are looking for.

Also, if you are feeling the call to pitch in, you can sign up for volunteer training. You can learn more through a free app from the Red Cross or by visiting its website.

This is a situation residents in the Boulder area are going to have to deal with for months to come; however rescue teams are hoping most of the bad weather will clear out on Monday.
