Havoc and more chaos for tourists and residents alike

What can I add which cannot be seen in these pictures?
Chaos in Bangkok - people are now being killed - Bangkok Post link
Then I read that guests in this country cannot leave because of the lava over Europe. And the FCO advice for UK residents stuck in the country.
"If you have run out of money
Ask a relative or friend to transfer money via a commercial money transfer service
The British Embassy can advise you how to do this."
Aid was not offered to many of our guests and they are being told that they would be with us for 3 weeks - with zero support OR fly to Malaysia with telephone support with no guarantee of a forward flight.  The question on everybody's lips is why is there no contingency plan regarding a mass delay of flights...............
