Fires and flooding are currently causing many folks to evacuate their homes in areas of Texas and along the Susquehanna River in New York and Pennsylvania. (The flood level at my hometown, Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, which sits along the Susquehanna, is expected to crest tomorrow morning near the record level set back in 1972 by Hurricane Agnes.) Anxiety, the need for information, and a strong desire for things to return to normal, often accompany displaced families. As libraries continue to build service continuity plans and become aware of the many roles they can play in a disaster situation, the emotional impact of disasters on communities will be lessened.
