Geez. I had no idea.
I heard thunder, then pouring buckets of rain all night.
I heard there are a lot of people that were evacuated and are staying at Gayle Middle School.

Does anyone know how we can help?
I have some room in my house that I could make available for anyone that has been left homeless...
