Red Cross Prepared to Help Flood Evacuees in Newaygo County

Posted: Updated:

Heavy rain has flooded parts of Newaygo County and some people are forced out of their homes tonight.

While many were evacuated yesterday, more were evacuated today. With rain expected to continue, many more could soon see themselves out of their homes.

The Red Cross, along with help from the Salvation Army, has set up a shelter in Fremont for anyone who has been displaced by the floods.

They say they have room for up to fifty people, and have cots, food, and other supplies ready for those who may need it.

If the current shelter fills up, the Red Cross says they are prepared to open other shelters.

The current shelter is located at:

TrueNorth Community Services

6308 S. Warner Ave.

Fremont, MI 49412
