Emergency Relief Issues
Not only are the rescue workers struggling to find people amongst the rubble and the mud. They now are faced with the prospect of essential aid not being delivered due to the ash cloud. Reports say that if it should drift any further, aircraft will be unable to fly in much-needed supplies.
The number of dead is now over 1400. Authorities are unable to estimate the eventual total. This is due to the difficulties being experienced caused by the earthquake and aftershocks.
There are possibly hundreds of people buried under the mudslides. No survivors are expected to be found there.
