Surf Motel Opens Doors to 300+ People During Storm
Sunday, January 13th, 2008

Govind Reddy says it was his own experience growing up in Fiji, where huge storms left he and his family without food, water or shelter for days, that motivated him open his Surf Motel and Gardens in Fort Bragg to anyone who wanted to take showers. More than 300 people, stranded without power, heat and hot water after a series of big storms hit the North Coast a week ago, took advantage of Reddy’s kind offer. Some tried to pay him. “Of course I didn’t take it. I’ve been in their shoes. My offer was from the heart.” That’s the Mendocino Coast spirit.
