Red Cross volunteers respond to Molokai home flooding

Red Cross Hawaii

Volunteers with the American Red Cross are responding to a residential flooding on Molokai. The home is located on the east end of the island.

Disaster volunteers will meet with affected residents and ensure their immediate emergency needs for food, shelter and clothing are met. Caseworkers will continue to follow up with anyone affected in the coming weeks to provide referrals, guidance or additional assistance as needed to help with the recovery process.

The Red Cross encourages all families to make a disaster plan to include an evacuation plan with two different routes of escape, a communications plan to help families reconnect after disaster and a disaster supplies kit that is readily available to aid in a quick evacuation. Information on developing a family plan is available here and a brochure can be requested by calling 734-2101.
