NORWOOD, Ohio -- Want to help the families affected by Sunday's flash flood?

Norwood, in particular, was hit hard by heavy rainfall -- turned flooding -- that began Sunday evening. At least 30 people were displaced when their apartment building was severely damaged.

The Red Cross is assisting some families that were left without a place to stay; others are relying on the kindness of others.

On Tuesday, local radio stations held "Norwood Day" to collect cleaning supplies for flood victims. The public is invited to drop off cleaning supplies including paper towels, mops, buckets, rubber gloves and trash bags at Cumulus Media at 4805 Montgomery Road. People in need of supplies will be able to pick them up at the Vineyard Central Church on Mills Avenue.

The Norwood Moose Lodge and Love City Church also held cleaning supplies and water drives for Norwood residents in need.

The Norwood Firefighters Association opened a donation account at Fifth Third Bank; 100 percent of proceeds will go toward assisting flood victims. Anyone can donate to this fund by going to Fifth Third Bank and saying "I want to donate to the Norwood flood victims fund."

If you personally experienced sewer backups as a result of flooding, you can file a claim with the MSD online.
