Good Samaritans answer the call to take critical supplies to people trapped by flood waters

In hard-hit Arcadia, Good Samaritans have made supply run after supply run for days. Leslie and Justin Nelson used their boat to ferry food, water, medicine, diapers, and anything else people needed that couldn't get to staging areas. "We are picking up supplies there from the National Guard and our local agencies, and we are running them to First Bunker on 70 west and 72 because all the major roads to get to those places are either flooded or caved in," Leslie Nelson said. Leslie is the assistant principal at West Elementary School and said she won't let the community where she was born and raised down.
