15: I went to the bank to get my money. There was a huge line. Apparently the bank couldn't take all the people taking out their money. IT CLOSED! I drove all over town and ALL of the banks are closed with an angry line of people outisde of them. I don't know what to do. I had all of my money in there and now it's all gone.
