Shelter life wears on California evacuees awaiting word on homes

Shelter life wears on California evacuees awaiting word on homesBy Alex Dobuzinskis VENTURA, Calif. (Reuters) – California wildfire evacuee Richard Seabold once spent a month in the South Pole, so he knows something about surviving in tough conditions. Life in an emergency shelter, however, has been particularly hard, the 83-year-old said on Friday as he gripped a Styrofoam cup of coffee and sat next to his cot in a warehouse in the coastal city of Ventura. “I used to live and work at the South Pole, and it was much nicer than here,” the military veteran said with a smile, wearing a cap that read “Navy Support Force Antarctica.” Seabold and his 91-year-old wife, Yvonne, are among more than 200 people staying at the shelter at the Ventura County Fairgrounds.
