West, Texas :: How You Can Help or Get Help During This Time of Need

My heart aches this evening for fellow Texans after the West, Texas Fertilizer Plant explosion. The images are devastating; the injuries and loss of life unbearable.

I've found some great resources for those who have been affected, those looking for family and those wanting to help. Please note, these are official sources.

Emergency Information - This comes from the office of Congressman Bill Flores and contains important numbers and location for family phone lines, blood donations, shelters, nursing homes, donation locations and more.

Red Cross Safe and Well Site - Residents can register to let their loved ones know they are safe and people can search for their loved ones.

Red Cross of Central Texas 
Make a donation by phone by calling 254-523-4985
Text  REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
