See that's exactly right you can probably hear some of that digging behind me earlier today those two bulldozers were not working -- -- no gasoline for them but now they are working so it's a slow and steady process here.
But some people are still believed to be a lot.
In that building right behind me now you've heard a lot about people.
Who are afraid to go back and there passes or whose tests have been destroyed or places like this -- where many of those people are ending up -- some really.
Horrific stories that just pretty much thrown their mattresses out here are some of them are living in those school buses behind me as well.

Of its 300 gets 200 still unaccounted for.
