Tema 30 structures on fire

So far Tema has reported at least 30 structure fires including the Park Vista Hotel and a neighboring apartment complex. So sad my heart is breaking for everyone. The winds have been so strong that it is all over the news in southern Ohio. We can literally smell the smoke from the wildfires here!

It looks like Gatlinbug has been heavily damaged. The last report I saw said that the center of downtown is largely intact, but either end of town is basically burned out. Several businesses, hotels and homes are lost. This is a horrible tragedy and I'm stunned how little attention it is getting from the national tv media..
