What Is It Like Now?
It’s Clean Up Time
This was my view when I went to help salvage momentos from a church members home. The smell wasn’t too bad as the house only got 2 feet of water and only sat in it for 9 days. Anything paper or fabric was drenched even if it was high on a shelf due to the humidity. Even though I had been living through the devastation of Hurricane Harvey for days, it was hard to control my emotions and not completely break down seeing what once was a home ~ now look like a house that had been left derelict for a decade.
How Can I Help?
People are asking how they can help. Immediately we needed rain boots, trash bags, gloves, and masks as they are mandatory in a clean up. After Hurricane Irma, they are going to need them, too. They are in limited supply. Disease is a real possibility as sewage was in this water for over a week and in many places two weeks.
