The torrential rains that have swept across the Evansville area over the past week have caused major damage to residents homes and in some cases, forced to leave their homes behind.

The Southwestern Indiana Chapter of the American Red Cross has set up shelters across the tri-state for displaced residents and are also asking those of us who have been spared any serious damage to make monetary donations so they can continue to provide relief to those that need it.
