Gulf of Mexico Flood, Aug. 2016

There are massive storms hitting along the Texas and Louisiana Coasts.  It has already taken two lives and dozens evacuated.

If you want to know what you can do to help, the Red Cross is well known for responding to incidents such as this, and we recommend sending any relief funds you may want to donate to them.  Although it is admirable to want to send food or clothing resources, your finances will go a lot further in helping assist the people in the region as they are connected with Healthcare, Mental Health, Food, Shelter and other essential resources needed for victims of disasters.

If you are in the affected areas and need to know what is available to you, Louisiana Emergency Management, Texas Emergency Management and the Red Cross can put you in contact with resources to help get you back on your feet.
