CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- Volunteers from the local chapter of the American Red Cross have arranged for shelter for two Chattanooga families displaced this morning when flooding caused a sewage backup in their Campbell Street duplex.

The Red Cross provided shelter in a local motel, food and will follow up to see that additional needs are met.  The Red Cross has also followed up with the Chattanooga Hamilton County Health Department to make them aware of the situation.

This morning, the rainfall combined with the rain from overnight is still causing problems across the Tennessee Valley.  Several roads are closed or have standing water.  Drivers are asked to continue to use caution when navigating roadways.
