    It is always the people with less who expect more. Everyone's hands are out in this video saying help me help me, but what are they doing to help? Everyone is doing the best job they can and the fake news is twisting this story into something its not. This is same as any other hurricane there are so many people who have been donating their time and money, it takes time. They should of had a back up plan and planned for no electricity thats obvious, don't be so spoiled expecting everything to be done for you at once. Damn the people in this video complaining are so lazy, wonder what their jobs are and what type of government assistance they are on.

      3:03 is pathetic , girl crying over her privileges taken away. Still has more than a lot some people in this world and finds a reason to cry. How about be thankful for what you have and work on fixing your problems?

    I’ve been through this situation before and they inform you well in advance what is expected to happen to get you prepared!!
    The First Lady that was talking about “this part of town has power and it’s considered the rich part and us we are considered poor and we don’t have power” Its not where you live or how much money you have come on now!! It pisses me off hearing this stupidity!!
    I’m more then sure there is multiple utility company’s from all over the United States that are there working together and are divided up throughout the city to restore power!! So how much money a person does or doesn’t have has nothing to do with the situation!!
    The lady about the ATM you were well informed about things and you should have known the atm wasn’t going to work!!!
    I don’t want to sound rude but it’s going to take time for things to happen!!
    At least the people in this video here all are safe and that’s all that should matter right now!!

    Agreed. Most of these evil people commenting should be ashamed of themselves. Its OK that the rich have been freeloading off the backs of working folk for centuries, yet you all want to make poor people feel bad for not knowing how to help themselves. How do you sleep at night? Your mom did not teach you how to be a good human being.

    I gave up all meats, dairy and eggs after researching the disgusting and vile truth about the US (and other countrys') animal agriculture abuse and torture secrets and industry habits of what ALL poor and helpless animals have to silently suffer and endure just to satisfy "human taste buds". The FDA allows 750,000 particles of INFECTIOUS PUSS per ONE CC of MILK!! INFECTIONS PUSS is in every single drop of milk and cheese and any dairy product. Plus those poor cows are CONSTANTLY RAPED in order to stay pregnant and produce PUSS MILK. Then their babies are ripped out of them and killed within 72 hours if he is a male baby calf. Cows are mammals. We are mammals. A cow's gestation period is 9 months. A human's gestation period is 9 months. A cow calls for her dead killed baby calf for weeks and weeks and weeks NONSTOP. And this happens to ALL FEMALE COWS YEAR AFTER YEAR AFTER YEAR until they drop from exhaustion from being OVER-MILKED AND OVER-IMPREGNANTED AND THEN they are dragged to the slaughterhouse to have a bolt gun shoot a bolt between their trembling, scared, tear-filled eyes, then hung upside down, still alive while having their limbs sawed off while still alive and feeling every single bit of that pain then having their throats sliced open while being upside down and alive and then turned into MCDONALDS HAMBURGERS. HUMAN BEINGS ARE MONSTERS for doing this to other species! We have GOT TO STOP THIS vicious cycle of cruelty, violence and inhumane treatment of sentient animals!! The egg industry is just as tortuous and disgusting. Baby male chicks go down a conveyor belt and are ground up alive while chickens live 2 years in a small crowded cage never being released, standing on painful metal cages until they die of infections or being eaten alive by maggots and other chickens in the same cage. Nursing pigs are confined to metal indoor crates their whole lives too, never able to move or protect their precious little babies who die helplessly. Please help stop this insanity and be a voice for the voiceless. Peace and love to you all.. 💕

    Its crazy how Trump literally took out $29 million of FEMA aid and other social programs to then separate 5K children from their parents. I'm not saying anything bad about our administration. I am just noting that I believe our ALWAYS BEEN GREAT country has their priorities mishandled. Forgot to mention that we waste approx. 25% of our produce because we like our produce to be aesthetically pleasing to purchase or that restaurants around the country throw out food past their misguided "best by date". It can also take as much as 30 gallons of water a day to hydrate a cow. Maybe we can stop eating meat for the week so that more water can be sent to the people to survive. Sorry I'm on medication and I just rambled my thoughts...
    Goodnight and peace

Yes I'm very aware that people make these comments every day, but I honestly believe that you'll be excited to have found me. I'm a new artist and my monthly listeners are expanding. If just ONE PERSON could give this a thumbs up, you'll be much closer to helping me share my passion and art with those that need to hear it. I promise I actually make pretty good music and you'll be mad surprised. All I need is one chance (3 min). I'll be looking forward to hearing from you.

    A friend of mine has shelves that she stores food on and keeps it stocked with enough canned food for 6 months to feed her family in case of no power . She stocked up little by little and when it’s full she uses the older things and replaces with new . Maybe people in areas where things like this happen need to be taught to do something like that . One can a week for a while will add up . And when bad times come you won’t be so in need . When my kids were small I did this but just had room for a few weeks worth of canned food . During power outage in winter it really helped .

    Puerto Rico was left to die by Trump & company ,with no power for about a year!!.
