Friday morning, the coast was clear.
“We’re going home,” said Altagrace Bonhomme, of Delray Beach, to her two daughters, Wilnise, 8, and Rebecca, 4.
“Yay!” said Wilnise, in white sandals and leopard-print pajama pants, holding her dog Delilah in the crux of her left arm.
Staying at a Palm Beach County shelter wasn’t too bad for the family, nor for Delilah. But they were anxious to get home.
“I don’t know what do expect,” said Bonhomme.
The family hopped into their minivan and made the short trip to suburban Delray Beach.
