Pam Szymanski is holed up in an Atlanta hotel, but she knows her home in Fort Meyers, Florida has sustained damage. A neighbor told her that the that the living room window is gone, The Associated Press reported.
And while she had a room in Atlanta, 574 miles away from her home, Szmanski is trying to get closer to her residence, moving to Valdosta, Georgia, 228 miles closer to home, but still almost 350 miles away. And there's no timetable for her to finish the trip. She could run into downed trees and closed roads. Also potential roadblocks include empty grocery stores, power outages and little to no gasoline, The AP reported.
