How do you unlock the hood of a 1990 Honda Civic if the hood release cable has snapped?

if your car runs, drive to your local fire dept they have a tool specially for opening hoods of cars when it wont open the proper way it will take em about 1 minute to open and will not do damage.i am sure if you ask they will open it for u and have a bit of alaugh aswellwhen opened get a soda pop can and jam between hood and latch so it will not close on second latch until u replace cable
