The post went on to say that employee housing had been damaged, but the entire staff was able to be evacuated. Of the employees, the post said, "a majority are in danger of losing their homes or have lost them already."

The post said they are responding to as many questions as they can, but will be able to be quicker about responding once things settle down.
