MONTICELLO, Ind. (WLFI) - People affected by the flooding have been using a shelter in Monticello, especially for meals.
The American Red Cross opened a shelter at the Best Western Plus Brandywine Inn and Suites.
The shelter has had people come in for food, water and to see what kind of services are available.
Volunteers are thankful that so many local businesses have donated food.
News 18 talked to Jim Robinson who was staying at the shelter. He said water was up to his knees Wednesday morning when he was evacuated from the house he rents.
"When I left, my bed was floating through the bedroom and rugs and stuff. You couldn't hardly walk in the house because the carpet was up floating off the floor and trash floating in from outside when I opened the door," said Robinson.
Volunteers said Thursday night they will keep the shelter open as long as needed. They will also provide cleanup kits to people who need them once the water recedes.
