THE WOODLANDS, TX — The American Red Cross continues to monitor the situation as the rain continues across the state of Texas. Both their shelters in San Jacinto County and Montgomery County will remain open as long as the need is there. Last night they had 13 people stay in our San Jacinto County shelter.

Shelter opens in Montgomery County

Their teams continue to work to make sure everyone has a safe place to stay, food to eat and emotional support for those affected, if needed. The Red Cross and partners remain committed to supporting communities in this time and as the full scope of this event comes to light.

Red Cross Shelters:

San Jacinto County
San Jacinto County Building, 121 Live Oak St, Coldspring, TX 77331

To find a shelter, visit, check the Red Cross Emergency App or call 1 800-RED CROSS.

Anyone who plans to stay in a Red Cross shelter should bring prescription medications, extra clothing, pillows, blankets, hygiene supplies, important documents and other comfort items. They should also include any special items for children, such as diapers, formula and toys, and durable medical equipment and/or assistive technology if applicable. While Red Cross can provide medical equipment and/or assistive technology loaners, it may take a little time depending on inventory on hand and availability of delivery systems to get them to the shelter.
