CRANSTON, R.I. (AP) _ The Red Cross says it's now helping 75 people after a flash flood inundated an apartment complex in Cranston on Labor Day.
The group says 29 families requested help for things such as clothing and food after the flood, which filled the ground floor of the building with water.
Residents have only been allowed back into their homes briefly to retrieve small items.
Cranston mayor Allan Fung tells The Providence Journal the area has not had trouble with flooding before.
WPRI-TV reports the property manager and an engineer will visit the complex Wednesday to determine if it can be salvaged.
