Once again, city shined in time of need
As our reporters have covered the local impact of the two most recent hurricanes, they’ve spoken with many volunteers and evacuees. They’ve given a lot of people a chance to share their opinions, and not once have we heard a negative comment.
That is really saying something about our community.
Evacuees have been comfortable and provided with all of the basic necessities. That didn’t happen everywhere. In some shelters, people went for days without showers. They complained about the condition of their surroundings and treatment by shelter workers.
