CONTRERAS: A lot of people did. We looked at social media. A lot of people prepared.
They boarded up their homes, but then also at the same time, a lot of people did board up their homes here and stayed here and just rided out the storm. Last night, we were monitoring our social media channels and we were getting reports of people that were, you know, tweeting and posting on Facebook that they were at home, that they were safe, that they their pets, and their power didn’t start going out in the area until about 11:00 or so when the storm got stronger.
