[Morning, May 14, 2008] Control food consumption
We held a temporary Party committee meeting. Judging by messages from various channels, many townships in Dujiangyan were damaged. Among them, Hongkou Village and Xiang'e Village might be severely destroyed.
It seemed that we had to make efforts to help ourselves. The first thing to do was to control food consumption until rescue personnel arrived.
The government bought necessary items from various stores and allocated supplies to the masses. Good news: Planes were sent to airdrop food and drinks.
Leaders named and allocated to specific tasks:
I stayed in Liping Village, taking charge of the food distribution at temporary refugee sites and accepted airdropped supplies.
Town chief Zhao led a team to inspect the disaster situation in villages lying high in the mountain.
Secretary Wang's right leg was swollen, but he insisted on leading a team to Dongyue Village and Nanyue Village.
Good news: We have received water, food and medicine from the city.
Unfortunately, we couldn't drive vehicles yet since we had to save petroleum. Gasoline was being saved for use at the most critical moment.
