Still sheltered in Clay County
Clay County has opened a permanent shelter at Tynes Elementary school in Middleburg. It is already open and will remain open until it is no longer needed. Clay County Fire and Rescue Captain and Public Information Officer Bernita Bush says officials were going to close the shelter, but as many residents eft to go back to their homes, they realized when they got there the houses were uninhabitable. Bush urges people to report their damages so it’s included in the assessment of all Clay County damages. She says it’s most important for people to have three days of food, water, and other necessities on hand in case of another event such as this.
