As a Code Red was issued this afternoon, signifying an evacuation is possible from Riverview Circle, and the surrounding neighborhoods, the Morses and John Brummer were not giving up.
After uploading the video, I’m heading back into the neighborhood. My motel is just around the corner. A note slipped under the door a few minutes ago announces “We’re in Code Red. Please be prepared to evacuate at short notice.”
I’m not leaving unless the Morses and Brummers do.
