We've been flooded and know how it feels. You see "flood-mud" the rest of your life.

This is reminiscent of Minot a year ago and many homes are still ruined and standing empty. It takes but hours to do the damage but years to come back. God bless. Arlene

I was privileged to be among the thousands from all over the world that came to help out in MS after hurricane Katrina so this is a well remembered scene. I cancelled a planned recreational trip to the NE and used my travel funds and a borrowed RV to stay 6 weeks and work in Gulfport.

Most of us cannot begin to understand the devastation a natural disaster has on a community. I have just made a donation to Portlight.org and hope that many others will do the same to help these people rebuild their lives.
