The Michigan Community Service Commission and American Red Cross are looking for volunteers to help homeowners remove debris and gut basements and salvage belongings.
Monday marks one week since torrential rains flooded streets and freeways, trapping cars and sending rushing water into thousands of basements.
Spokesperson John Mozena says the flooding is wide-spread, and it’s been difficult trying to get a handle on where the biggest problems are.
No serious injuries have been reported and there is no word yet on what caused the fire in the Hidden Trails Apartment complex in Monroe.
A survey conducted by the Red Cross showed that the majority of Americans say that they have what it takes to be strong swimmers, but 54 percent can’t display critical water safety skills.
A two-alarm fire in a senior high rise apartment building sent dozens of residents out of the building, wondering where they will spend the night.
Up to an inch of snow an hour is expected on Sunday.
These funds will be used to distribute relief items, repair and rebuild shelters, provide healthcare and ensure access to clean water and sanitation systems.
Palace Sports and Entertainment, along with the American Red Cross, are asking you to “Give Blood to Honor Your Hero”.
“It was like nothing I had seen … It really didn’t look like a neighborhood at all,” said one local Red Cross volunteer.
