It’s been four days since a tornado hit the town of Eureka, causing widespread damage and power outages.
Since then, help has poured in for those affected by the storm and that effort continues today.
A multi-agency resource center was set up at the elementary school in Eureka. Rather than people having to call various agencies providing help, the one-stop shop brings all agencies providing help together.
The Salvation Army, American Red Cross and Greenwood Hospital are just some of the groups there.
People can receive financial assistance at the school or get help with locating important personal information.
“If they lost their birth certificate a marriage license the state has provided forms for that. Different agencies are providing clean up crews that can help with debris maybe they’re not able to go out and do that or maybe it’s just too big of a project and they don’t have enough tools, volunteers from all over the state are pouring in,” said Dicie Nicklaus with the American Red Cross.
If you were unable to attend the event, a list of resources and contact information for agencies that can help will be at the public library in town. The American Red Cross also encourages you to contact them with any questions.
