UNDATED (WHTC) -- The Red Cross of West Michigan is lending a hand to support rescue operations in flood ravaged Colorado. Seven local workers, including the regional Chief Operating Officer, Mike Mitchell are at the Boulder airport reception center. Sunday night, as many as 1000 people stayed in 24 shelters across the state. Government officials estimate that as many as 18-thousand homes are affected by the flooding in Colorado. Some of the communities are isolated as many roads have been washed out completely but as those areas open up, the Red Cross will be there to help out. If you’d like to help the Red Cross help other, visit the website, redcross.org or call 1-800-RED-CROSS.
