Here in the tri-state, we are staring down flooding levels not seen since 1997.  And, as rain and storms continue, the problems continue to get worse.  This morning, I had the chance to chat with my friend, Malissa Troutman with the American Red Cross, about how you can GET help if you need it and how you can GIVE help if you are able.  Take a listen . . .
