PEOPLE BACK IN
Most of those evacuated are now back in their homes. To those who had no damage, you'll still appreciate more than ever the comforts of home. To those tasked to rebuild, it is painful now but you will make it through this trying time. Good luck to all.
Kudos to the TV stations of WBRE, WNEP, and WYLN TV 35 for covering this event. WBRE had the most coverage but essentially had no choice in the matter since 'BRE was evacuated. To the newspapers, as always spot on. And to the radio stations, WILK,(with non stop coverage) WVIA FM and WARM Radio (with flood updates) you showed the immediacy of radio. And I think I might have mentioned this the other day in "Maybe I'm Amazed" but it was wonderful to see the local TV and radio folk tapping into the great knowledge of David DeCosmo who really added a good perspective to the events.
My e mail was hacked into this past week. Most likely the result of playing too much with my new I Phone. We've corrected the situation and I apologize if anyone on my e mail list got some spam junk. Just ignore it.
Blythe Evans from Plymouth took this video of the flooding in Plymouth. Evans is running for the County Council and has been concentrating on helping his neighbors in his hometown. Here's his video.
