For the past day and a half volunteers have been busy preparing meals, helping with evacuations and setting up shelter for those forced out of their homes.

As the flood backs down, the organization is getting ready to shift from evacuation mode to recovery mode.

Julie Schoening is the Red Cross Emergency Services Coordinator.

"In that recovery mode we'll be working with families to make sure they're getting the correct information to clean their home so they're not getting mold."

If you'd like to help with the flood recovery you can volunteer by calling the local Red Cross chapter. Their number is 1-800-939-4052.
