Jenne Neptune, president of the Seattle Hotel Association, says there are 19 people currently in Seattle that the hotel association helped accommodate.
On Thursday, a Ride the Ducks vehicle collided with a charter bus carrying North Seattle College staff and students.
Four students of the college were killed. They were identified as Claudia Derschmidt, a 49-year-old woman from Austria, Privando Putradanto, an 18-year-old man from Indonesia, Mami Sato, a 36-year-old woman from Japan, and Runjie Song, a 17-year-old girl from China.
The kind act by area hotels began with a call from the Seattle mayor’s office—who is working with Neptune for help accommodate incoming families.
25 area hotels are participating.
