    Their gear typically is flown in on several fixed wing heavy transport, and there's no place to land anywhere near there, as there was in Sri Lanka.  It took about a week (around Jan 4)to get into Sri Lanka after the disaster (around Dec 27), and in part the delay was in lining up proper transport.  Part of the delay here may be lining up a viable way to get there.

    They do have the capabilty of deploying up to 4 reverse osmosis water purification units that can produce up to about 200,000 liters/day of potable water, and that would seem to me to be much needed.
