Social Media guru Scott Reuter with Oregon Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (an awesome organization, by the way) has posted a great list of Oregon flood resources.
He also has some really good advice if you’re ready to jump in and volunteer:
“Regarding volunteering: Your help will be appreciated and needed, but wait to be asked. Self-deploying to disasters before officials are ready and are requesting volunteers can be unsafe, and can cause difficulties and hardship for those affected by the disaster.
Also, sometimes help is needed well after the response phase for long-term disaster recovery – if you can’t help now, you can still be a great help later!”
