I live at Aberdeen South and woke up with all the commotion but didnt think much of it because fire trucks and ambulances go by all the time--living close to Station 4 and K-10 its a pretty common thing.

I was also awake early this morning when the lightning hit and thought to myself that it was super close but of course didnt think anything of it.

I am glad that everyone is safe as this could have been much more devastating.

I'm wondering if anything else is being done for the people displaced by the fire--since they are neighbors I would like to help out if I can, so if anyone knows of any efforts, please let us know! (not that I wouldnt help out if they werent neighbors..its just closer to home and I cant imagine losing my home) This could happen to anyone--scary.

i do know that the red cross has been giving some kind of vouchers to get clothes and other need items for the people who lived in that building.

My nieces lived in JJ 8 and lost everything they own. The Red Cross gave them a 250.00 card to purchase food and personal items. We think the cat is probably dead. We are so very grateful to the man who knocked on their door...this day could have been much, much worse...he is a hero to us. Thank you Dear Lord.
