Our help is needed
Posted 9/13/2013 7:39:00 AM

Nature has been good to us in South Florida so far this hurricane season. Not so kind in other areas of the country.

The pictures of the flooding in Colorado are astonishing. The water in the streets is rushing like you would expect water going over falls. Bridges are washed out, communities are separated from each other. The Red Cross is already responding, but they can't do it alone. They will need our help.

Then there's the horrific fire at the Jersey Shore. The same area that was devastated by Superstorm Sandy last year. The area that was rebuilt and re-opened just this past Memorial weekend. Nature takes no blame for starting the fire in a frozen-custard stand on the Seaside Park portion of the boardwalk - the cause is still under investigastion. However the 15-20 mile per hour winds caused the fire to spread at an unmanageable rate. More than 400 firefighters tried to put the fire out, but couldn't contain it before all 32 businesses on the boardwalk were destroyed. The Red Cross contributed to the rebuilding after Sandy, and will surely assist in the rebuilding effort that will begin once again. Many South Floridians grew up in New Jersey and New York, and the Jersey Shore was more than a reality t.v. show with some ill-behaved kids. It's a place of fun experiences and family memories.

Once again, they will need our help.

Once again, here's the link for the American Red Cross.
