They’re worried about finding a place to stay.

“Everything I own is in there, so, I’m going to find another place to move; or else, hopefully, the township will take care of this problem,” said Dave Kunhs, an evacuee.

Structural engineers have to assess the land to ensure people can safely return to the home.

That’s expected to take at least three days.
