Caldor fire and Hurricane Ida update: September 2, 2021

Our teams continue to monitor the Caldor fire, which is still threatening the Lake Tahoe Basin and is moving closer to the Nevada state line. Residents who were transported to shelters are currently remaining in place, and one resident who had been taken to a nearby hospital will be transferred to the nearest HumanGood life plan community for appropriate care. Our team members are continuing to support residents while also monitoring the status of their homes. Team members in Redding, CA, also continue to remain on alert while monitoring the Dixie fire and other active wildfires.

In Pennsylvania, heavy rains from Hurricane Ida caused the Schuylkill River to overflow its banks in Philadelphia. Our affordable housing community, Riverside Presbyterian Apartments, was impacted by flooding into the building’s parking lot, ground floor and elevator shafts. Due to the amount of standing water surrounding the community, our teams are not able to access the community. We are in contact with those in the building and can report that all residents are safe in their apartments. Our teams are working on an evacuation plan should it become necessary to vacate the building.

At Rydal Waters, our life plan community in Jenkintown, PA, the heavy rains have caused a sink hole to form on our campus.  There are no homes directly impacted and engineers have been called to determine next steps to remediate the 3 ft. wide and 12 ft. deep hole that has developed. 

As more information about these developing events becomes available, we will continue to share updates with you. In the meantime, thank you for your ongoing support for our impacted residents and team members.
