Red Cross Arrives to Help Flood Victims

Posted: Updated:

PACKWOOD, Wash. - Packwood and Randle residents are getting some much-needed assistance after the week's flooding.  The Cowlitz River inundated some homes there, and left a mess in the ones still standing.

American Red Cross volunteers from Yakima set up a disaster relief center Friday, at the Packwood Elementary Gym.  They're handing out clothes, food, water, and cleaning kits to people who need them.  Wal-Mart employees from Chehalis donated most of the supplies.
