        Very sad. You'd think there would be emergency plans around for something like this. I hope someone can help.

          Jill, they absolutely had no warning, it was grab your stuff and go, in some cases they didn't even have time to grab anything. This was an unprecedented situation. From what I have been able to find out the building is okay and didn't loose power. I would think they were able to get in yesterday but haven't seen any more.

            I did a search on news and found this " A team of marine biologists and Life Sustainment Specialists were escorted back into the facility Tuesday afternoon and Ryan Desear, general manager of Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, said all animals are fine and the building was not damaged." so that is good news!

              Thanks, Janice. I was just coming by to make that same statement.

                Yay! I just figured they'd have emergency plans before they actually needed them. I'm glad they all seem to be ok.

                  A lot of us here in the mountains are now concentrating on new emergency plans, wildfires are something we haven't had to contend with. I am so glad that they didn't loose power there although I assume they have back-up generators. From my understanding Galtinburg is still evacuated.
