She continued, "My daughter's home has no water, pipes are breaking all over because of the cold. Again, they can handle it, but a lot of people can't. For my family, it's one thing. But for people who don't have so many options it just heartbreaking. It's a question of needing water and food and energy and vaccines and the rest. We really have to be on top of that and hope that there would be some preparation for the future."
