Only one shelter open in the whole of these areas, in Kitnersville??????????? The only one???????

I think it is diplorable, that these areas do not or did not, prepare for this mega storm hitting us today and tomorrow. They did not have any emergency shelters set up for people who live in mobile homes and have no where else to go. Or people who live in low lying flood areas....they have had ample time to prepare, to open schools, libraries, firehouses...nothing...???????????

Way to go and many thanks to our Community Leaders...you should all be ashamed.....no longer does the human being take into consideration the what if's....no longer do communities care about each other....

There are tons of old folks out there living alone, and thanks to our thankless communities, whom we pay taxes to, they will loose electric and have no where to go. The weather stations have been predicting this storm for days, and yet, no one thought about opening up shelters in our areas for the old, for those who live in flood planes....etc.....

And that is what our leaders do for us?????????? Incredible....

No one in these communites had a plan in place for emergency, and yet, I suppose they were granted funds from Homeland security? I'm just guessing...however, no disaster plans in place....

and yeah, I know we haven't had a disaster in years...however, no one in these communities seemed to care about the what if's. And now, that day has come, and nothing for these poor people who will be left in the cold....this is a disgrace...
you should all be fired...you were hired to take care of these kind of things....yet, not one place, except in Kitnersville, is there a shelter open...I just can't even begin to consume this let alone believe it!!!!!

if there is loss of life, due to this storm, you leaders of our communities better be prepared to deal with the consequences.

Even the Red Cross knew of not one shelter open in these areas....disgusting!!!!!!!!
Nor did the local police...even more disgusting....
I got, call back or call this number, but as of now we know of nothing, I mean, I can't believe this!!!!!

You should all be more then ashamed.

I see a few in Bucks..
County opens Emergency Center, shelters

Quote:
The Bucks County Emergency Operations Center was opened at 5 a.m. Monday as Hurricane Sandy approached the region, county officials said.

Emergency shelters are open at Council Rock North and Pennsbury East High Schools in Lower Bucks and Palisades High School in Upper Bucks. Pennsbury East and Palisades are pet friendly; pets are not permitted at Council Rock North.

Not anywhere in Telford, Perkasie, Franconia, Quakertown, Souderton, Hilltown, etc.
There are a whole lot of people in these areas....
No preventative disaster plans ?

I'm certain that there has been a discussion of disaster plans in each of these towns. Maybe they feel that people would be safer in their homes, rather than driving in this weather?

Have you checked the township websites? As an example, Quakertown lists two evacuation sites:

Palisades is less then 30 minutes from a few of those places. I do hear you but this is not a common occurrence so I don't know how the Red Cross can be more prepared then they are. I was surprised to find three places in Bucks county!
