- A drop of millions of food-water packs from the air. We could have organized quickly small packages containing high calorie bars and water bottle, attach them to small parachute and drop them from air planes or helicopters. We hear from the news the difficulty of reaching the people, this could have been a solution.
- We could, with some work and preparation, have a nuclear powered "barge" ready to provide power and fresh water from a sea water when needed. The Russian have build such vessels.
Each vessel has two modified KLT-40 naval propulsion reactors providing up to 70 MW of electricity or 300 MW of heat, enough for a city with population of 200,000 people. It could also be modified as a desalination plant producing 240,000 cubic meters of fresh water a day.
- Another idea I had (not the first to have it, it seems) was to use blimps as cell towers. Those communication devices could be setup quickly and be impervious to any problem on the ground. Communication would have been greatly improved.
