Seifried said when he started his research into the aftermath of and recovery from the storm season which devastated much of the Gulf Coast, he was somewhat surprised.
“When we were watching television from Pennsylvania things looked horrible,” Seifried said. “All we could think about was sending aid and condolences. We were just horrified.
