(ROSENDALE, Mo.)- Northwest Health Services is stepping in to help those affected by the recent floods.

From now through the end of July, Northwest Health will be passing out medical supplies and toiletries all for free. Items include first-aid kits, soap, bug repellent and toothpaste.

This has been made possible with a partnership with Direct Relief.

There will be stops in Buchanan, Andrew, Atchison and Holt counties.

The staff say they are glad they can help out their community during a very difficult time.

"This is amazing. You feel so horrible when you see houses where there is nothing left. It's a total loss," said Jacob Parks L.P.N. of Northwest Health Services. "Any little thing we can do to help our community, we feel very blessed to be able to do that."

Northwest Health will be holding the drive Thursday at their Mound City Clinic from 10 a.m. to noon. Then they will be at the Trails End Truck Stop in Rock Port from 1 to 3 p.m.

For more information you can call (816) 596-4006 or you can visit the Northwest Health Services Facebook page.

The forecast for today will be very similar to yesterday, but just a couple degrees warmer although we are still staying relatively cool for this time in August. The air quality is much better today with the haze starting to clear out of the area. Tonight will be cool and calm with lows in the mid 60s and light winds. There is a slight chance for isolated showers tonight and tomorrow afternoon, although most of the area should stay dry. Dry and sunny conditions continue into the weekend as temperatures start to warm up again. Highs look to stay in the 80s until midweek and then start to climb into the 90s as we head into the weekend.
