People just don't want to leave and some I don't blame cause they fear they will have their homes robbed, but I think alot of people stay is because they are stubborn or they think by staying there homes will be ok or nothing will happen to them and their homes, we all know this is not true you need to leave, please listen to what you are told to do.
