Here is the email he just sent me:
I would like to try and describe how it is down here but I am too tired to think, but I will try. It is totally filthy and destroyed but often you cant tell if it is because of the earthquake or if it has always been this way. Anywhere that there is a big pile of rubble the flys increase and the smell of death is so strong you can taste it. It is really terrible, by far the worst place I have ever been.
I spent the whole day in the city today running down medical supplies to be flown out. It is a logistical nightmare trying to coordinate things enough to be effective. We will know better in a few day if it will be worth staying. There is tons of work that could be done but getting the supplies is almost impossible at this point. I suppose you cant blame the military because they cant just have a free for all, but it is really frustrating trying to make things work out. I think I am bringing out some medical supplies to a doctor tomorrow, and some other stuff, not totally sure. You wouldn’t believe this airport, it is almost total chaos. The controller can just barely keep a handle on things. There is everything from 206’s to C117’s and all the fixed wing have to wait at least 10 minutes to get off the ground. Total zoo.
I will know better in a few days if it would be worth you coming down here but at this point it is not. Wish you could drive around with us and be frustrated though. Love ya, z
It just hurts to look at. We have it so good in the U.S.A. I chose not to show one of his pictures because it was too disturbing. I have nothing to add, but please pray for the survivors and those trying to help.
