12 families burned out of homes

Big fire destroyed 2 multi-family homes yesterday and displaced 12 families. The Red Cross is helping. Our state went into official shelter at home a 11:59 last night. Pray for these families! There is a critical affordable housing shortage in our area so finding housing will be a BIG problem. Can you imagine being in a hotel room with kids, little to entertain them, and not being able to go any where for a break? Cars on the street were either destroyed or damaged. The siding on nearby houses was melted off by the heat of the fire. My heart goes out to those folks.

My anxiety is nothing compared to what they are going through.

That's terrible. I can't imagine going through that with little kids, especially at this time.

That's awful. Thank God they got out, but yes, housing is a problem.

I actually worry quite a bit about what will happen to people in a large-scale natural disaster. In those situations where people often are sheltered in stadiums, gyms, churches, etc., where will they go and still maintain social distance?

How awful! It sounds like they have somewhere to go right now- I don't know how long they can be there? Like Tori, I worry about how to maintain social distancing when these disasters are often aided by having people in large spaces together. However, with the lack of traveling, that would mean that more hotel rooms would be vacant, and that allows for better social distancing. But it's hard to have a hotel room be your own world- especially when you don't have the food or other supplies you've gathered at the ready.
