PAROWAN -- A woman from Parowan is headed to Texas to help residents with major flooding there.
Evelyn Halstead is a member of the Red Cross's Mental Health Team. Friday she received a call to help.
The flooding has caused thousands of people to leave their homes. While in San Antonio, Halstead will help not only the flooding victims but volunteer workers.
"Floods are the worst disaster, I think, because there's the contamination of water," she says. "There's the smell, the mold, the mildew. The real trying feelings of losing everything or feeling like you lost everything, and having no control over the situation."
This is the third time she has traveled to help victims of flooding this year. She also helped in Newark and Nashville.
