My house made it out well, no fences or trees any more, but thankful for that being the only issues I have. All my friends that live less that five miles from me have nothing. Been running from sun up to curfew everyday tarping roofs and walls to the house that are still standing. Cell service is out indefinitely for Verizon customers only. Luckily father-in-law brought in an att hotspot so we can at least get emails out to family members to let them know we are okay. It’s complete devistation, my town is gone and not sure how long it will be before it comes back.
Great to hear from you
Sorry for the yard damage, but as you said thankful that was all the damage you sustained. A few weeks ago when. I was in the middle of Hurricane Florence which turned into way worse of a Florence Flood a Gracious member here sent me some help and told me not to send him anything back but to pay it forward so send me your address or an address I can send you a get well package to. Hang in there sorry about your Hometown.
I really appreciate it, but what we need here are things that just run out so quickly. Things like gas and ice. We made a gas run yesterday north east of here. A trip that would normally be 2hr round trip, took us every bit of 8hrs. Filled up $300 worth of fuel tanks and grabbed 12 bags of ice(all they had). I provided a generator for my friends elderly neighbor, and between them two and the other friends we are helping with gas, we will have to make that run again about every 3 days. Last report will be two more weeks until they get power. Plenty of drinking water is around in the Panama City area, but the rural areas outlying Panama City haven’t even been reached yet.
Looters are getting bad. Radio reported an average of 10 looters are being arrested daily and most have been armed. Nobody in my truck are a conceled permit holder, but we are armed. My neighbor is a police officer, and they said they are kind of overlooking it as long as you don’t appear to be doing something illegal or doing something illegal.
I feel pretty guilty going home at night after supply my friends with the things to keep them going. My power is on, only thing I’m missing is cable, internet and clean drinking water. At the end of the day, after dropping them off, they are still living in the war zone.
