Washington's State of Emergency

I mentioned in yesterday's post about how we girls all braved the weather Monday night (much to each of our husband's bewilderment) and enjoyed a fun night out. While we had to endure some lingering rainfall, we were able to completely avoid unbearable traffic congestion and flooded areas.

Many others were not as fortunate. Some faced horrific conditions. Some watched in agony as their homes fell victim to the tropical storm. Some entire cities were cut-off as roads in and out of town were washed away or completely covered by flood waters. Some work to clean up the aftermath. Some still seek refuge.

Our hearts and prayers go out to those who lost property, homes or worse yet...loved ones.

How You Can Help:

All American Red Cross disaster assistance is free, made possible by voluntary donations of time and money from the American people. You can help the victims by making a financial gift to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, which enables the Red Cross to provide shelter, food, counseling and other assistance to victims of disaster.

The American Red Cross honors donor intent. If you wish to designate your donation to a specific disaster (Northwest Flooding) please do so at the time of your donation.

Call 1-800-REDCROSS. Contributions to the Disaster Relief Fund may be sent to your local American Red Cross chapter or to the American Red Cross, PO Box 37243, Washington, DC 20013. Internet users can make a secure online contribution by visiting:
