Where would you evacuate to, if you had to?
“I probably would not be able to evacuate, due to lack of funds and a car. Many in this community are in that position.” ~Liz Velez, Beacon “Eden Village Camp, west of Cold Spring. It’s a self-sustaining eco-village with a farm, goats, chickens and cabins.” ~Bekah Starr, Beacon “My father was just talking to us about it yesterday! We’d go to the mountains — to the Catskills.” ~ Ben Enno, Hopewell
