Texas Flash Floods

The eastern portion of Dallas, TX was hit with nine inches of rain in a six-hour period on Sunday, August 21. Flooded roads required rescue efforts as abandoned cars floated down inundated streets. In some areas, the rainfall totals are considered to be 1-in-1,000-year floods.

Americares has several partners in the Dallas area and is conducting outreach to assess partner needs.

To date we have offered assistance to two dozen partner organizations in Texas, including 23 clinic partners and the Texas Association of Charitable Clinics. In addition, we have offered assistance to seven national response organizations.

Americares is prepared to deliver medicine and relief supplies, if needed. Americares recently responded to historic flooding in Kentucky as extreme weather events from the effects of climate change occur with greater frequency.
