Two Red Cross Shelters Open For Flood Victims


Due to the flooding in the Quad City area, the Red Cross has set up two shelters to help victims.

The first opened last Thursday, April 18, 2013 in Davenport at Immanuel Lutheran Church on Rockingham Road.

More than a dozen people have already taken advantage of the facilities, getting hot meals and a place to sleep.

A shelter is also available for families on the Illinois side of the QCA, experiencing flooding from the Barstow to Port Byron areas. This shelter is located at the Eagle Ridge School in Silvis.

Volunteers say they'll keep the shelters open as long as they're needed to give the water time to recede and families time to clean-up.
