Assistance Available for Area Flood Victims

The Red Cross and Salvation Army are doing what they can to help.

They're collecting bottled water for families in Wewahitchka and Howard's Creek areas.

You can help by donating bottled water at the Wewahitchka Community Center, or at the Red Cross office on East 15th Street in Panama City.

Gulf County has also opened an emergency shelter for flood victims. If you need assistance, call Gulf County Emergency Management office at 850-229-9110. They'll contact the Red Cross and arrange for shelter.
