We saw some crazy weather pass through Central Texas last night. We hope everyone is safe out in Round Rock, Granger, Elgin, and the surrounding cities that faced disastrous weather. Whether you are looking for resources as someone who faced displacement from the tornado or looking for ways to help our fellow Texans, we gathered this information for you.
KXAN shared how to report property damage, seek shelter, and check for property outages. The Texas Division of Emergency Management is asking anyone affected to fill out a damage assessment survey to help them supply resources to areas that need it most.
Call Austin Disaster Relief Network for help: 512-806-0800
Call the Central Texas Red Cross for help if your home was destroyed or significantly damaged: 800-RED-CROSS
Temporary shelters have been set up in Round Rock at the Red Bud Elementary School and Dell Diamond Heritage Center. In Elgin, they have opened up the Elgin Recreational Center. In Granger, the Sts. Cyril & Methodius Recreation Center has been set up.
Those Looking to Help:
One of the best things you can do to help victims of these tornados is to join us in funding organizations that already have systems in place. Below are two of the most reputable organizations that help Central Texans in need.
Central Texas Red Cross will be assessing damages and helping anyone that needs it in the Central Texas area. To donate to support their efforts, click here.
Austin Disaster Relief Network will also be opening funds and assistance. Their current campaign is here.
You can also help by bringing food, blankets, toiletries, and other items to the temporary shelters. If you would like us to pick up items from your home to bring to the shelters, please let us know. We are happy to send a team member out to collect them.
If you know of additional resources, shelters, or funds that we missed, please let us know. We'd love to continue adding to this post as more information becomes available.
