Local organizations are requesting assistance in flood cleanup efforts.

Those interested in responding to Saturday’s storm can go to the Tuscaloosa County Volunteer Reception Center between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Monday, June 21 and Tuesday, June 22. 

The Volunteer Reception Center is located in the Church of the Highlands at 721 Rice Mine Road. Closed-toe shoes are advised for all volunteers. 

Questions should be directed to Tuscaloosa’s One Place at 205-462-1000.

Saturday’s storms, which claimed the lives of two Tuscaloosa County residents, damaged the city’s water infrastructure and caused major flooding. Tropical Storm Claudette brought more than 7 inches of rain on Saturday night, 4 inches of which fell within two hours. 

Alabama Governor Kay Ivey declared a state of emergency in response to Claudette, which has caused 14 deaths throughout the state.
