The extend of the damage has not been fully evaluated though FEMA is expected to help as much as possible and was expected on the ground soonest.
The leaders of the affected cities continue to ask people to be calm and shelter in place or go to the shelters already provided, where the Red Cross, Salvation army, and other humanitarian assistance are provided.
