PoodlesForBernie2016 comments on La Vita Bella nursing home in Dickinson Texas: "I was a first responder after hurricane Katrina (in between shifts waiting tables) and had some direct and devastating experience with this.
The nursing home evacuees we received at the Red Cross shelter arrived 6-deep in ambulances and had been trapped in facilities without AC for about a week. They had been rescued in canoes and in some cases had had to walk or be carried through thigh-high water. When they entered the air conditioned college basketball stadium that had been turned into a makeshift hospital, many almost instantly went into hypothermia and many died. They turned the away-team locker room into a morgue.
