After a weekend of severe weather, Red Cross teams across the country are responding to local communities in need. From a blizzard in Kansas to tornadoes in Texas and flooding in Missouri, we know many of you – or someone you know – may be in need of assistance, and we want you to know where to go. Shelters are open, food is being served and relief supplies are available.

Here is a list of states that are responding, where to find them on social media for updates and how to contact our teams in those areas if you need the Red Cross:
