Red Cross Assisting East Cape Girardeau Residents

Over 25 families across the river in East Cape Girardeau have been forced to relocate because of the Mississippi River Flood waters in the area. To provide relief the American Red Cross has set up a service station in the Cape Girardeau area this past weekend and also set up an additional service station in East Cape Girardeau on Monday. As a result a total of 50 residents received assistance with finances. The funds the residents received went from $300 to $500. Red Cross officials say, they will be back in East Cape Girardeau to help with recovery efforts once the water starts to recede.
