LOGAN, Utah — The American Red Cross is working right now to help Logan residents after a trailer park flooded. 

The Blacksmith Fork River is flooding the trailer park, leaving those who live there with nowhere to go. 

Elishia Ruesch, who lives in the park, says she woke up yesterday to knee-deep water underneath her RV. 

“The whole RV park was pretty much underwater,” she told KSL NewsRadio. “Nobody that lives in here has anywhere to go, not one of us. We’ve all been trying to figure out what we’re supposed to do.” 

Furthermore, the city of Logan says that utilities were shut off for safety reasons due to the water level.

This has caused a lot of worry for residents like Ruesch who relies on oxygen and needs power for her medical needs.

“We’re paying rent, but we’re homeless basically,” Ruesch says.

Michael Smauldon with the Red Cross says they’re helping those with dire needs right now. Also, he says that Red Cross is prepared to help Logan residents and anyone else who is displaced by flooding over the next few months. 

“If a situation like that occurs, we have a team in place to be able to start those evacuation procedures,” he told KSL NewsRadio.
