Long Day Ahead...

This afternoon, a small administrative group of Red Cross volunteers and employees gathered in the Disaster Command Center to assess the impact of recent storms so far on the community. While the situation is constantly evolving and the extent of damage is still unknown, the American Red Cross is preparing for a long day.
Teams are finally able to head out and assess damage. We anxiously await their reports.
In addition, the City of Dallas has asked that a second shelter be opened in anticipation of families being forced from their homes by flooding. The second shelter will be at the Bachman Recreation Center, 2750 Bachman Drive, Dallas, TX 75220. This shelter will be open at 4:30p.m.

The shelter at Zaragoza has opened and so far, no victims have arrived.
We will keep you posted!
