ELSA – The American Red Cross shelter operations are back to normal; they are transitioning the shelters back to each respective county.

Friday was the last resource event the American Red Cross held for those affected by the June floods.

Three weeks ago floods destroyed Stephanie Garcia’s home in La Feria.

Garcia stopped by the Red Cross multi-agency resource center in Elsa; she says she needs all the help she can get.

She picked up food and cleaning supplies and sat down with a case worker.

Garcia is one of hundreds who took advantage of the American Red Cross initiatives.

After Friday they go back to normal; this is their last disaster event.

A spokesman for Red Cross, Axl David, tells CHANNEL 5 NEWS all residents who were depending on the Red Cross shelters have found alternative lodging and no longer needed them.

Over the past few weeks, the Red Cross served more than 85,000 meals and snacks and provided more than 1,200 overnight stays in shelters.
