    I don’t know why it days 9 miles has MREs. We have been yesterday and today and they didn’t have any, nor do they tell you if they are getting any.

    First off thank you to all responders of every branch & volunteers & providers! At the century location I have to say I believ it was very strategically planned & made for a very smooth process to receive much needed help in such a short time frame for a devastating situation. Again thank you ! They actually as of 11:30 did have plenty of water, ice, boxed meals & also hot meals to go , they were however still waiting on the truck of tarps. Again thank you ! If someone would please in this area could notify when tarps are available. Thank you

    >William- do you know if Century got MRE’s yet?

    They should have been there by 11-11:30

    They should have staged it at the local high schools so people dont have to waste gas driving to far and the lines wouldnt be blocking major roadways.

    Water and ice only in Century for right now as of 8:20am.

    For Molino residents nobody is offering anything for us or Cantonment area. We would have to drive to Century or 9 mile. We are always forgotten on this end of county no matter what it is. Maybe we should all think about this next time it is time to vote for our county and state officials. At this point who can afford to drive that far when you can’t hardly get gas. Totally disgusted. Thank you to EOC for all you do not do for us!

    I don’t understand why they didn’t have a pickup area out this way. We either have to go to 9 mile or century. During Ivan we had one at the old Winn- Dixie. I don’t understand what our government is thinking, only having 7 locations for all of the people that live in Escambia county.
