(apologies for the delay...)
Volunteers from the Birmingham Area Chapter did provide on-scene emergency assistance to around 20 people at the Panorama East Apartments in Pinson Valley.
Our initial estimates show that 10 units were affected, at least eight of those a total loss. We provided clothing kits, snacks, and drinks to those who were there -- and made sure that all of the tenants had a place to stay for the night.
All of the families were given our service center number and location, and are expected to come in throughout the day to complete their casework for the rest of the assistance for which they are eligible.
