The American Red Cross is opening another shelter. This time in Peoria.
 
As the water continues to rise, many Peoria area families are being forced to evacuate their homes. 
 
In response, the Red Cross will be opening a shelter at the Redeemer Lutheran Church, 6801 N. Allen Road in Peoria. The shelter will be ready to receive flood victims at approximately 8:30 p.m. Thursday.
