Calhoun County remains inaccessible except through the use of country roads leading north to Pike County, but residents now have some options for getting food. The head of the Calhoun County Emergency Management Agency says since word got out about their plight, donations of non-perishable items have been coming in from various sources.

Gene Breden head of Calhoun County EMA, tells The Big Z there are now pantries open in Hardin, Kampsville, and Brussels.

In addition to food, cleaning supplies - especially bleach - are needed. Donation sites have been set up around the region.
