I just wanted to put the word out about the terrible wildfire down here in Bastrop Texas, if you haven’t heard about it. It’s been burning since Sunday and has already burned ~ 1,400 homes, 34,000 acres, and has killed 2 people.
This fire is still only 30% contained and fire officials say it still has pontential for growth.
We’ve had just under 400 firefighters constantly fighting this blaze since Sunday and we need more…
If you know any veteran or active firefighters that could come or feel like they could help, please pass on the information. Here is the Bastrop Fire FB page
Also, thousands of families have been displaced and have lost absolutely EVERYTHING.. if you can donate ANYTHING… ranging from baby clothes/needs to food then please do.
And the firefighters are in need of things like Gatorade, Powerade, Water, anything that has electrolytes, and protein bars… I cannot imagine how these men & women are still going like they are!
Here’s the link to a Church in Austin that I know is helping
And of course ladies your thoughts and prayers are always needed, wanted, and welcomed… We’ve had MANY MANY fires this year (over 100 just over the weekend) but this is by far the worst in our history and as of right now it’s not letting down.
Here are just a few pics of the fire size, and damage… We won’t know the extent until the fire is out…
Thanks ladies… it’s such an awesome community here and I know that ya’ll are always so supportive. Thanks for anyway you can help and for your thoughts and prayers.
ETA: per @Beingewe: If you know anyone who might need it, u-haul of austin is offering free storage to victims. I think they are also doing a donation drive.
