Houston, TX, October 7, 2019 — The American Red Cross continues to provide relief and comfort to residents affected by Tropical Storm Imelda. In order to reach more people, the Red Cross will open local Recovery Centers where those affected by flooding will have an opportunity to receive emergency clean up supplies and recovery resource assistance.

Caseworkers will be available to discuss your needs. Recovery Centers may vary by location. Those who attend the Recovery Centers need to bring proof of address, such as a utility bill or lease agreement and proof of ID such as a driver’s license, passport or state ID.

Over the next week, the centers will rotate to different sites across the affected counties. For most up-to-date listing go to the American Red Cross Texas Gulf Coast Facebook page or call 1-800-Red-Cross.
