Galveston, Texas (AP) Most Houston residents are still without power days after Ike came roaring ashore on the Texas coast.
Most of those without electricity aren't expected to have their power turned back on for at least another week. The blackout is making it tough for residents to track the latest information on where to pick up supplies.
A 59-year-old woman says many of her neighbors are old and sick and don't have cars to get to a nearby emergency food distribution site. She adds that no one has come to her street to offer ice or water.
Houston Mayor bill white has complained that FEMA hasn't brought in supplies fast enough. Homeland security secretary Michael Chertoff will be in the city today to meet with local officials.
