There was no communication with the rest of the world until an emergency line was set up by the Red Cross with a connection at Memphis. Mayor Fletcher offered the City Hall, which had been erected while ne was Mayor, for the use of all emergency personnel. He tried to be everywhere at once, and went 72 hours without sleep. He was near exhaustion before he finally calmed down and tried to rest. He won a commendation from the Red Cross for his outstanding service.
