Online community story: Samantha H. is safe

Samantha H., a regular Gather.com contributor checked in with us yesterday evening:

I'm okay! I've just been trying to help out as much as possible. I just went out and took some pictures if you want to see them.

Many stores and businesses are closed. Many roads are closed. They're asking people not to drive if possible. They are fairly confident that most places in town should be okay. There are national guard members patrolling the dikes to make sure they don't burst. The river is cresting today. Wish us luck! - Samantha H. Mar 28, 2009, 6:12pm EDT

Her photos of the flooding highlight the sheer volume of water, but the real message is that she's well. Do you know someone who is in the flood area? Check in using redriver.gather.com.
