Now that the waters have receded, volunteers and staff from the American Red Cross South Mississippi Chapter are on the ground in impacted neighborhoods helping Jackson Countians affected by the flood. Red Cross emergency response vehicles (ERVs) are on the move in water-soaked neighborhoods in Pascagoula and Moss Point providing clean-up kits and emotional support to impacted-residents. Disaster assessment teams are in affected neighborhoods in Gautier, Pascagoula and Moss Point. Once their assessments are completed, client casework will begin.
Red Cross provided assistance to four people in the shelter last night with hot meals, clothing and emotional support; the shelter closed this morning after the final four evacuees secured alternate lodging.
