Help Silver Spring Apartment Blast Victims

PMA expresses sincere condolences and solidarity with everyone who was affected by the August 10 tragedy at an apartment complex in Silver Spring, Maryland. Two buildings of the Flower Branch managed by Kay Apartment Communities suffered from a massive blast and fire caused by a natural gas explosion. The blast killed seven people and injured more than 40. More than 100 residents have lost their homes and have been displaced.

The devastation from this horrific event was felt throughout Montgomery County and shook the entire DC-area property management community. We encourage PMA members to participate in a donation campaign to support the victims and spread the word about the campaign at their organizations.
