My mom told me that my sister and her family were able to go back to the Biloxi suburban home on Friday. Their home as well as others in their neighborhood had very minimal damage. Praise God for this blessing! Both my sister and her husband will be in some uncertain times in the months ahead, though. The hospital pharmacy where my sister works was destroyed. The roofs of boths buildings where my brother-in-law works were blown off. His employer told him it would be months until they are up and running and that he should try to find temporary work if he can. They also have to young adult sons who are living at home and attending trade schools. I am sure it will be some time until their schools will be functioning as well.
So even people whose homes have sustained little damage will be dealing with many abnormal situations in the months of recovery in the area. We need to keep them all in our prayers.
