Help midwest flood victims
Rain storms, including remnants of Tropical Storm Erin, have caused persistent flooding throughout parts of the Midwest and southern U.S. The flooding has damaged thousands of homes and businesses, and has claimed at least twenty lives. Many of these areas were already saturated from the elevated rainfall during previous weeks. As relief operations in Texas and Oklahoma continue, approximately 20 counties in Minnesota, Wisconsin and northeast Iowa are under assault by more recent flooding, much of it along the Mississippi river.
