I’m sure many of us are remembering those evacuating from Rita’s onslaught in our prayers. Honestly, as bad as southern California traffic is, I can’t imagine being stuck in gridlock like those people.
Then, I was devastated when I read this story about these evacuees from a nursing home being killed when their bus caught on fire. It seems mechanical problems caused the fire. But then the residents’ oxygen tanks began exploding. They are estimating as many as 24 people killed.
Father, please have mercy on everyone as they seek refuge from the storm. Give them patience and perseverance on the roads. Grant all of them safe travel.
