I heard about the slide first from Facebook. Friends who lived in Arlington were worried about their own homes being flooded, as images came out, my heart broke. I hate to say that I have been lucky to not know any one, but I have. I keep watching and waiting for someone I know to appear on the screen. I made calls to friends to confirm they were safe, but my heart still breaks.
I have not lived their since I was 20, but my heart aches. I wish every time I turn on the news for a survivor, I hope the pain can be eased for those with missing loved ones.
There are many ways to donate, I am not going to list them all as I want people to donate where the feel drawn to. Before you donate just make sure it is a legit set up.
Please keep these communities in your thoughts and prayers.
