I think it may be due to the hotels around the area also being damaged, thus needing to move the people away from there, but this also creates problems as the roads leading to those areas are damaged as well as the port and airport not to mention the bad weather makes it hard to use helicopters.It is appaling how bad the relief is coordinated. Firstly there are thousands of people who lost their houses or are afraid to enter their homes because of damage.
We are a fuckin tourism country with thousands of hotels, why are these people not sheltered in these hotels? Hotels have rooms, beds, showers, kitchens but no, our people try to bring tents and towels.
Do the right thing, bring the people to the hotels stop wasting time with tents and sleeping bags.
lastly, I think there might not have been enough rescue workers as it seems like they are concentrating on the largest cities first and yet they still do not have enough people for all those buildings.
