Responding to Widespread Flooding

Team Rubicon is Serving in Michigan, Mounting a Response in Texas, and Monitoring Storms Across the Country

Team Rubicon is mounting a response in the wake of severe flooding in South Texas after a state of emergency was declared in six counties on Thursday, June 21. Some of the affected residents include those still recovering from Hurricane Harvey. In coordination with local and state authorities, Team Rubicon will conduct flood relief operations in Hidalgo and Duval Counties, TX, for approximately three weeks.

Severe weather will continue to make its way across the Central Plains, Midwest, and the East Coast this weekend, while areas of the Midwest are reeling from excessive rainfall. Today, Team Rubicon kicks off a two-week flood response in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in Houghton County.

Team Rubicon has launched over 40 operations in 2018 while continuing to rebuild hurricane-affected homes in Houston and Puerto Rico. We maintain a roster of over 80,000 military veterans and civilian responders committed to helping disaster survivors begin the recovery process.

Founded in 2010, Team Rubicon unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams.
