Our transcription: While the official response is well coordinated, there's clearly too much damage for public agencies alone to adequately address.

Relief organizations like the Red Cross help galvanize this sentiment into action, and a strong volunteer effort stretching from Santa Cruz to San Francisco quickly takes shape.
