    My friend Fiona Seiberling Jackson has missing family members they are very worried about.

    Catherine Perigo and her husband both approx age 75 who live on Railroad Street. No one has heard from them.

    And her aunt Pauline Smith approx age 90, who lives on what used to be Clydeon road (can’t remember the new name) No one has heard from her either and they’re beside themselves with worry. With phones down it’s nearly impossible.

    If anyone has seen them or knows if they are safe please contact Fiona directly. Thank you. She’ll post their photos soon.
