Flood Shelters Have Been Opened – Here’s Where They Are
Soon enough, we're going to have to start commuting by boat in the Quad Cities.
Flood levels are near record-breaking right now, with the crest set to hit today. In Downtown Davenport, the flood wall broke, and entire blocks are under water. It's heartbreaking to see, as businesses are closed and cars are ruined.
But there are bright spots! More and more people in the community are stepping up to help. And, as of this morning, flood shelters have officially been opened, according to KWQC.
The Red Cross is encouraging any residents affected by the flooding to go to a shelter, bringing along any needed medications, clothing, personal hygiene items and medical devices.
The shelters are located at:
Lincoln Fundamental School
318 East 7th Street
Via the 8th Street & Iowa entrance.
Bethel Wesley United Methodist Church
1201 13th Street
Via the back entrance.
Staffing for both shelters is provided by Red Cross volunteers who will be on-site while it is available. Cots, blankets and meals for shelter residents are provided, according to KWQC's report.
