Neighbor's Show Their Support for the Missoula Avalanche Victims

Posted: Updated:

Its been a very scary couple of days out in Missoula, where an avalanche sweep through a home burying three people.

Retired UM professor, Fred Allendorf is now listed in serious condition while his wife is listed in critical. And as for the 8-year-old boy, his condition is still unknown.

Yesterday, residents lined the streets with shovels and avalanche probes hoping to help pull the three from the rubble. Today their back again to offer a helping hand.

Jeanne Twohig, a neighbor, tells us, "It's emotional. It is. We're finding her jewelry. Someone found some of Fred's journals. It's important things we're trying to salvage what we can."

One day later the emergency crews are gone, but the remains are still there. A chimney pushed on top of a car. The windows were broken out and the car is completely filled with snow.

Twohig's husband was killed in an avalanche near Lolo years ago. She says she wasn't able to assist in his search and recovery, and is now happy to be able to help a neighbor affected by a similar disaster.
