  Most part of the Padang and affected surrounding area had lost their power supply. Generator is the only way to get electricity.  Apparently, the electrical system has also been collapsed. Though, we haven’t had precise information yet. 

  Overall, it is estimated that more than one million and half people are affected by the earthquake. The countryside, where is difficult to access, is one of the main priority.

  Tomorrow, we will move to the small villages of the countryside, where are still not accessible.
