The Crisis Center has confirmed that insurance cannot cover the cost of any damage associated with the flash flooding. They are unsure of the exact extent at this time but know it will involve the replacement of technology and carpets. Any donations designated to recovery efforts would be appreciated.
The Crisis Center’s facilities, staff, volunteers, and clients have been affected due to flash flooding.
Last night, The Crisis Center food bank was open and still serving clients when the flash flooding and tornado warnings began.
Staff and clients were able to move quickly as tornado warnings began, moving to the appropriate shelter areas.
Despite the circumstances, the food bank still served its usual 200+ daily client families and continued to answer the Crisis Line.
Multiple offices on the south-facing side of the building were flooded with several inches of water, destroying some office technology. SERVPRO is currently assessing the damage. Full recovery could take three to five days.
The call room, where staff and volunteers answer the Crisis Line, has been temporarily displaced and is functioning in The 1105 Project building boardroom.
The food bank and warehouse remain unaffected and began operating at noon today, as usual.
