When I went to bed at around 4 or 5 this morning the death toll was at 51, After a couple hours rest me and a friend went to donate food, clothes, baby items and our time helping one of the churches in our neighborhood. When I got home I turned the news on again and at last count the death toll was lowered to 24, 9 of those were children and no survivors had been found in the last few preceeding hours.
People are being asked to go to Aliveandwell.org to check in and or check on family members. It is unspeculated as to how many people are still missing. We are still being asked to keep cell phone lines clear and communicate thru text and social media. Nearly 40,000 are without power and some areas have no water.

I made the mistake of watching part of Diane Sawyer's coverage on the evening news. I am so sorry for what you all went thru & will have to face in the months to come. I just can't take watching much more. It was great seeing parents & their children reunited, but my heart breaks for those parents still waiting. Best of luck to you & your community.
