More Typhoon problems

This article in today's Taipei times is truly heartbreaking.
Apparently up to 10,000 people have been trapped for days. One township had "395 houses of which only 2 remain"

" The government said its operations had been hampered because many areas of the country were cut off when roads and bridges collapsed." well yes that's what happens in natural disasters, but governments should find a way to solve that problem.

The government is now accepting aide from other countries after initially rejecting the funds....

It's a terrible situation...made even worse if the above story is true about the number of people stranded there.
