Flooding in Georgia

I just read, back to back, two heartbreakingly sad stories about the flooding in Georgia this week, which has claimed at least nine lives and left possibly thousands of people with nothing. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that most of the people affected do not carry flood insurance on their homes, because they weren't considered to be living in high-risk areas.

Hundreds of people are in shelters at the moment. You can donate to the Metropolitan Atlanta Chapter of the American Red Cross here, if you want to help.

Please feel free to leave links in comments to other relief organization seeking funds to help in the area.

If there are any Georgia Shakers who need help, please email me and let me know.
