San Diego Fires: Personal Commentary

Is there any form of placement assistance happening with evacuees? I understand people who are holding out because their areas expect to repopulate soon, but those that have lost homes shouldn't be staying on concrete indefinitely. On Craig's List there is post after post of people offering rooms and homes, yet people are still milling about Qualcomm in the open air and open heat. It's really great that there are services and donations and food and whatnot, but isn't it time to start getting people in better places, safe from the heat and smoke? Shouldn't they, at the very least, start moving people from Qualcomm to places like The Rock Church that have more comfortable accomodations? Are evacuees being asked to stay at the Q or are they coming and going? I mean, if I was evacuated, I'd hit the nearest comfy coffee shop or sports bar and kinda just camp out. Am I too far from the circumstances to understand?
