DES MOINES, Iowa – The American Red Cross says it has distributed over 1,000 flood clean-up kits in Iowa.
The kits contain items like a collapsible mop handle, mop heads, heavy duty broom head, a squeegee head, bleach, garbage bags, rubber gloves, heavy duty work gloves and a large sponge. 400 of the kits have been handed out in Cerro Gordo County, with another 140 in Kossuth County.
Mark Tauscheck, Regional Communications Officer for the American Red Cross Serving Greater Iowa, says Red Cross vehicles from around the state have loaded up with the clean-up kits and driven into the communities hardest hit by flood waters.
