One of the RTA contributing writers, Aaron Reed, is part of the search/rescue/recovery team working on the Bolivar Peninsula. Virtually the entire town of Gilchrist was washed away. For some somber information -- look at this photo and read this article.
Our thought and hopes are with the courageous rescue personnel who are now searching for the missing bodies from the former town.
Aaron's blog can be read here -- he hasn't had any time to update it since the 12th... I just learned that Aaron has returned home for a couple of days. We will post more information about his experiences as they become available.
