Fires, floods, hurricanes have hit the US in the last weeks. Whether you have been an evacuee, volunteer or witness through images – we can’t escape the danger and randomness of natural disasters. Here in Oregon several large forest fires forced families to leave their homes if they lived in the path of the flames. Many other western states have experienced the same. The flooding and devastation in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico have forced families into shelters and left them without power for weeks.
