He said there is no electricity or water and they have seen no help from anywhere. They are only giving people 10 gallons of gas to go wherever their going, so nobody can really leave. He also said there is a lot of trees and power lines down. Their roof was torn up on there house and has many more damages. There is no food or water and no way out. Someone needs to start dropping food and water like they did when we bomb Iraq. These people over there are hungry and thirsty and need help until they can get out.
