From the experience of storms and hurrcanes people still seem to expect immidate releif to begin in a day or two. For this to happen the aid would have to be avalibe months in advance. It will take days before relief really kicks in. Think about what needs to take place, roads cleared of trees and trash so vehicles can enter, etc.
