Whether people's homes are destroyed or damaged, they're trying to get back to their homes to salvage what they can and are having trouble.

When FOX23 found Pamela Walker, she just looked angry. She said she felt like she's getting the runaround from law enforcement.

"They're not being consistent, they're not organized," Walker said.

Walker also said police told her she could leave her ravaged neighborhood to get food for her 3 three kids and said she could drive back in, but an hour later when she came back had a different answer.

"He said they changed their mind they're not letting anybody through but you can see people driving by in their vehicles," she said.

Walker had to park her van and walk.

"So here I am walking miles so I can get back to my family to board my house up and get it secure," she said.

Walker's home has a damaged roof and broken windows, which meant rain drenched the inside of her house and she's worried about looters.

"We're entitled to get our houses secure. This is our property," she said.

Walker said she'd like to take her kids somewhere with electricity and water, but she feels trapped.

"We can't just leave our house right now," Walker explained.
