When we see devastation like this we often want to help, but don't know how.
Red cross leaders tell us the best thing you can do is donate money to help fund their efforts.
"Your financial support to us helps us to send our caseworkers, our health workers, our mental health workers, and of course all of our other volunteers to go and help these families," Kasey Kelly of the Quad Cities Red Cross.
Kelly tells us they also supply disaster victims with basic necessities; food, clothing and shelter.
As well as providing emotional support. Kelly stresses that in any disaster situation before you plan a collection or drive, contact an organization like the Red Cross to find out what the need is.
Also do not send items like food or clothing to the area on your own.
