Thousands of Floridians rushed to escape from Hurricane Irma’s path and some found their way to Alabama, where residents of one community have volunteered to keep the evacuees fed while they’re on the road, Breitbart reports.
Residents of Baldwin County in Friday set up a tent at the Alabama Welcome Center and started cooking food for travel-weary people stuck on traffic.
One couple, Robert Clark and his wife Lori, told local media that they decided to cook hotdogs for the travelers.
Robert said they have fed hundreds of people, including one family who have been on the road for 15 hours since leaving their home in Port Charlotte, Fla.
“It ain’t in their budget for what they’re having to do right now,” Clark told WPMI. “These restaurants are gonna be packed. Just seemed like the thing to do.”
Other volunteers are providing help by giving travelers water, snacks, hotdogs and buns at no cost.
