CARRICK, Pa. —
Darlene Vacsulka said county agents came to her Carrick home on Monday and asked her to leave.
"I said, 'No, I'm a renter. I have a lease until April.' They said I had to leave today," Vacsulka said. "This should not be happening to me and it's happening to me."
Vacsulka said she has a collapsed lung and a ruptured appendix and must travel with an oxygen machine.
"I have hospital supplies coming tomorrow. Am I allowed to sit and wait on my porch? I don't know," she said. "I feel like we need a miracle now from God."
The county granted a 15 day extension to Vacsulka, giving her more time to figure things out. She said she is looking for a new place to live, but currently has nowhere to go.
