The employees are "keeping safe, as well as providing a place of refuge for campers that are arriving from nearby Woodbine campground," the announcement states.

Most of the employees who were working the night shift were able to make it home or were on their way home Monday morning, Robinson said.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with our communities and our local emergency responders as they all work on this challenging situation."
