South Dakota Called to Help
As numbers from the devastating floods in Colorado continue to rise, the Dakotas Region of the American Red Cross has been called in to help with disaster relief.
Two crews with emergency response vehicles will be leaving from South Dakota. Some volunteers from Rapid City have already arrived in Colorado to help, and a crew leaves Monday morning from the Red Cross Office in Sioux Falls.
Many towns in Colorado are still cut off due to the flooding. Over a thousand homes have been destroyed or swept away and hundreds of people have still not been heard from.
The Red Cross will be working with emergency management officials and the Colorado National Guard to help find a safe place for people to stay that have been evacuated from their homes, meals and emotional support in this difficult time.
