The American Red Cross is mobilizing across our area to help with the aftermath of Tropical Storm Isaias.
Volunteers will be distributing flood cleanup kits over the next few days. The kits include industrial cleaning supplies and other tools to help remove water and silt from homes.
Red Cross teams are currently providing disaster support throughout Berks, Carbon, Lehigh, Monroe, Northampton, and Pike counties.
The organization said it is working with local emergency management officials of each municipality to provide immediate support for displaced families, provide disaster assessments, identify local community need, coordinate distribution of clean up kits for residents affected by flooding, and support communities through recovery.
