    *Update*
    Wed 10:00 am
    I am at an airport just outside the city and somehow they have power and Internet :confused:
    It’s been so busy here we teamed up with a SAR group (search and rescue) and have now started looking for bodies. The scene here is indescribable I can only say it’s like what they show on TV only 5 times worse, and the majority of the people are not helping the situation. It seems like everyone has this “where the hell have you been” attitude.
    I had my camera with me so I could have pics but it was stolen off our truck by “looters” while I was sleeping along with some expensive radios and a $10,000 imaging camera.
    Funny how none of our food and water was taken.
    Looks we will be on or way out this Friday

    But of course when they come to the aid stations for food and water they bitch about how it took so long to show up.

    Isn't human nature grand?

    That really does suck about your camera. Be safe down there.

    The company I work for (a hospital network) is sending 20 medics down.

    Out of my mind, back in a moment.
    Glad you're still with us. Sucks about the camera. Proves that greed is more important than basic survival I guess.

    Wow, hang in there. I can't even begin to imagine what everyone down there are going through. That's great that you volunteered to help. Be safe.
