05/01/11 123 W, 1 I - + 4 - 3 Disaster Blows In, and Rescuers Become the Rescued

Today's News & Observer has a profile of the Miller family, paramedic and nurse Allison Miller and her retired parents Paul and Ruby. They live across the street from each other on King Charles Drive, in one of the neighborhoods hit hard by the tornado on April 16. Both of their homes were severely damaged. In the days that followed, off-duty firefighters and medics and others have been helping the Millers with the physical demands of securing and clearing their property. They've since moved into temporary housing, but plan to stay on King Charles. Which is where they've lived for over 30 years. Read the story, which includes a good-sized photo gallery.
