Second Homes Now Katrina Shelters
Thousands of second home owners are offering their places as temporary shelter for those left homeless by Katrina. Oregonians, for example. Several Tillamook County property owners have posted offers on the Internet. Dan Mailey, who lives in Hillsboro and owns a vacation home in Rockaway Beach, is one. Mailey offered his second home as temporary housing for a family of four or five people for 60 or 90 days. "I figured it would be somebody who had already been evacuated," Mailey said. He generally rents the home out during the summer, but has no bookings after Sept. 10.
