As the recovery from Tropical Storm Imelda continues, Texans impacted by the storm can go to specialized centers managed by the American Red Cross to get recovery resource assistance and emergency clean up supplies.

Earlier this month, Imelda became one of the wettest tropical cyclones in U.S. history, according to the National Weather Service.

The storm caused intense flooding in and around Houston, leaving five people dead and thousands displaced from their homes.

On Sept. 19, Gov. Greg Abbott declared a state of disaster in several counties, including Harris, that were experiencing widespread flooding.

People who go to the recovery centers need to bring proof of address, such as a Driver License or a utility bill. Caseworkers are available to discuss assistance and resources.

The Red Cross said the recovery centers will rotate to different sites across the affected counties over the next week.

Updated information is available at the American Red Cross Texas Gulf Coast Facebook page and by calling call 1-800-Red-Cross.

The Red Cross has also opened shelters for Imelda survivors. You can see a list of shelters here.
