Representatives of Wisconsin Emergency Management met with local public safety and elected officials in western Kenosha County today as the response to this week’s flooding continues.
Flood waters in Kenosha County are beginning to recede, and as conditions are improving in Racine County, the American Red Cross has made additional resources available here.
A full-service shelter for flood victims is now open at Salem Grade School, 8828 Antioch Road (Highway 83). Users are asked to enter through the west entrance off of Highway AH (89th Street).
All affected residents from all municipalities are welcome. Dinner will be served at 6 tonight. Overnight accommodations will be available to those in need.
The Red Cross is also working on having a mental health specialist onsite at the shelter to assist people dealing with the trauma of the floods.
