Shelter In McClure For Local Flood Victims Relocates To Cape Girardeau Church

Updated: Jun. 13, 2019 // 11:44 a.m.


A temporary shelter location in McClure opened by the Red Cross earlier this week has been relocated to a church in Cape Girardeau.


In response to flood and tornado damage across the state, the Red Cross currently has six shelters available for residents whose homes are uninhabitable.


Flood victims from East Cape Girardeau can now seek temporary refuge at Zion United Methodist Church at 3652 State Highway Z in Cape Girardeau. The previous shelter location, Spark Ministries Church, is no longer on standby.


The Red Cross asks that victims bring clothing for a few days, some bedding, toiletries and medications, and items for your children.


Efforts with local officials are ongoing to evaluate and determine the needs of residents with evolving conditions across the state.
