it is truly heartbreaking and we do need to see the truth which is so reminiscent of how katrina victims were left on their own. in this case, these nursing home people simply cannot fend for themselves. there is no way they can even get up and go looking for food or water themselves.

when the newspeople are filming these stories, have they no ability to give specific locations & updates to whatever relief is available? I imagine they do but it seems to make little difference. so sad.

Clearly, they need to get a hold of the Doctor's Without borders folks. This group could easily fill one of those insta hospital tents.... to at least have shelter, and basics....

I tell you this story put me over the edge.
I am heartbroken to see the total chaos and suffering going on there.
