    Red Cross on Central Texas Storms Hannah Cramer

After heavy rains and flash flood warnings this past weekend, the Red Cross is fixing the damages and preparing for more storms to come this week. Volunteers are going around to neighborhoods heavily affected by the storms in South Austin and surrounding communities to access the damage. Along with noting the damage, they are also supplying comfort supplies like toiletrees and clean-up kits.

“We do have a shelter on stand by in case there is a large evacuation and people have to leave their homes.”
– Bristel Bowen

Bowen says the Red Cross is encouraging residents to be prepared in every aspect by creating and practicing an evacuation plan and assembling an emergency preparedness kit that contains medication, non-perishable food, and battery powered radio. The most important thing residents can do is to pay attention to flood watches and flood warnings. I asked Bowen to describe the difference between a flood watch and a flood warning

“A flood watch means that flash floods are possible, and a flood warning is if it’s already occurring or it’s imminent.”
– Bristel Bowen
