The American Red Cross is available this week to help victims of the weekend deluge that cut off a Kinsman Township neighborhood from any main road.
Rushing waters from Stratton Creek flowed into Kinsman Lake on Saturday, washing away a dam and Lakeview Drive which runs over the dam.
Lakeview drive provides the only access to Route 7 for people living on Lakeview Drive and Golf Drive east of the lake.
First responders used All Terrain Vehicles to bring more than fifty people to safety following the washout along Lakeview Drive.
Those victims still have no easy access to their homes, vehicles, and daily needs.
Red Cross caseworkers are available Monday from 9 a.m. until noon at Kinsman Presbyterian Church, 6383 Church Street in Kinsman.
They'll offer assistance to those forced to evacuate their homes or residents whose homes received structural damage.
Those unable to meet at the church during those hours may call 330-392-2551on Monday and Tuesday between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
