Thousands of Donald Trump supporters stormed the nation’s Capitol Building on Wednesday, disrupting a joint session of Congress to falsely assert the election was stolen from the president. The rally quickly dissolved into what has been described as a “violent” and “chaotic” riot with throngs of people pushing past law enforcement and entering the building. Members of Congress are now sheltering in place at Capitol Hill, providing updates about their safety and the state of the country via social media. Here’s what congresswomen are saying about the lockdown.

Rep. Elaine Luria, Virginia

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Michigan

Rep. Elissa Slotkin, Michigan

Rep. Pramila Jayapal, Washington
