I got hold of Harley on the phone today, he and his are all ok. Good news that!
The wife and I took some paper towels and bottled water out to the place they are calling "Command Central" today. It is at the crossroads close to Camp Creek, which was the hardest hit in our area with 10 deaths confirmed. The Red Cross was there, as was FEMA, and Homeland Security.
We were told to tell people that they needed paper products, so we went back out later with toilet paper and more paper towels. And some soap.
They were set up to feed people and everything. Had people cooking on grills, food coming in from local restaurants, etc. It was good to see everyone coming together to aid the victims.
There were also crews coming in to clean up and rescue.
And as human nature would seem to have it, there were people trying to steal from those who had lost all, so the authorities had to block all access to the area except for those living there. ID was necessary to get through.
I can't believe that people would stoop so low as to steal from those who had lost about everything. To exploit that opportunity is heinous.
