Red Cross Opens Shelter In Dewey

The Red Cross is opening up a shelter in Dewey for Washington County residents who need assistance.

A storm rolled in overnight, knocking out power and damaging trees. Heavy rain caused flooding and a 50-unit apartment complex was badly damaged.

The shelter will open at Bluestem Baptist Church, 327 East Durham, in Dewey, and is expected to open at 4:30 p.m.

The shelter is offering residents food, water, and a place to stay.
