AUSTIN -- Since Thursday's floods in Central Texas, the Red Cross has been working tirelessly to provide food, shelter and supplies to survivors of the flood.
The Red Cross has served more than 10,000 meals and snacks, provided more than 300 health service checks and registered more than 500 individuals at the Flood Assistance Center.
Workers are also helping deliver supplies such as bleach, mops, gloves, rakes and shovels to flood survivors beginning to clean up their homes.
"We have made great strides in the disaster response, but there is still so much work to be done," said Marty McKellips with the American Red Cross of Central Texas. "Our focus now is to finish the damage assessment so we can move from response into recovery."
McKellips said the Red Cross will be around to provide assistance to these survivors "as long as the recovery process takes."
The Red Cross also encouraged Central Texans to take precautions as more storms begin to move into the area. Their recommendations include creating and practicing a disaster plan, assembling an emergency preparedness kit, heading flood warnings and relocating during flood warnings.
