Bonnie Stops Patricia Richardson

August 27, 1998

PAWLEYS ISLAND, S.C. (AP) _ Patricia Richardson, who plays Jill on ABC’s ``Home Improvement,″ could use some vacation improvement.

She and her three children were renting a house on Pawleys Island but had to evacuate to Columbia on Tuesday night because of Hurricane Bonnie. They came back early Wednesday when it seemed the storm would bypass the area.

Ms. Richardson tried to get to a friend’s house in Litchfield but was stopped by police.

``I said, `Look, I live in California. We have storms worse than this all the time and we never close the roads. Come on, you wimps, open the roads!‴ she said.

It didn’t work.
