Shelter from the storm

Standing under a sunny blue sky Saturday afternoon, residents of Milliken’s Evergreen Mobile Home Park waited for word about what little of their life before Thursday night may remain.
They were waiting for building inspectors to finish their walk-thru to find out if they could go into their homes to retrieve items, or whether they had been “red tagged,” meaning they couldn’t even enter.
Martha Gutierrez said, “We got out with the clothes on our backs. We waded out carrying our neighbors’ kids rather than our stuff.”
