The American Red Cross has opened multiple shelters across southeast Texas in response to the severe flooding in the region.

If you need to go to one of the locations, remember to bring prescription medications, extra clothing, pillows, blankets, hygiene supplies, and important documents. Also bring any items for children, including diapers, formula, toys, and durable medical equipment, if needed.

The Red Cross says that while it can provide some equipment, it may take time depending on inventory and availability to get it to a shelter.
