Catastrophic damage occurred to Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama as a result of Hurricane Katrina. Major bridges are destroyed. Mobile AL suffered its worst flooding in 90 years. In New Orleans, a large section of concrete levee broke last night. Water continues to rise, threatening, among many things, Tulane Hospital with 1000 patients. New Orleans officials: Do not attempt to return to the city at this time if you evacuated. It is too dangerous.

There's a moderate risk (the way SPC does things, really moderate risk is "high" risk, and "high" risk is "armageddon") of tornadoes this afternoon from Katrina all the way up to Virginia...
These tornadoes will pop up rapidly from very small, very fast moving supercells.
Help am missing several relatives. Is there anyway a forum could be set up to help with messages. Any ideas? I know they left city but cannot find, cell phones not working just busy signals. That sick sob shummer just on complaining about strategic reserves, I am so pissed.
CNN reported this a.m. that a levy next to the lake broke and water is pouring into N.O. now. Not good...
Thanks for the excellent job of keeping these threads moving.
You're kidding me????? How incredibly insensitive.
The same pissy chrissy matthews, after his hero john kerry was defeated stated that "foreign correspondents" should be sent to the red states.
Can you please tell us specifically the locations for which you need info?
No I'm not kidding. The Alabama Senator he was talking to corrected him and said "We call it the gulf coast".
Any words of sympathy from France?
What about Iran????? We sent them tons of money after the Bam earthquake. Are they sending us medics? Food? Money? Nuclear fuel from their nuke plants?
What about France? We bailed them out of the war? Are they going to come and "bail water" out of New Orleans?
What about Indonesia. They received billions after the tsunami. Any help from them?
What about Africa. Bush sent them $15 billion to stop having sex. Can they at least come and help us clean up?
The last report I read told of at least three levee failures. Most of the city is now underwater.
Thank you NN for all you have been doing these past few days.
Prayers for everyone..............
Please leave it for another thread.
Thank you bunches for keeping these threads running. I am going to go do some volunteer work here in Odgen this morning, but I am thinking about ways to do something to help NO and the gulf coast. People, if you have ideas, want to discuss it this afternoon?
God be with you all, especially you who have loved ones touched by this disaster (and your loved ones, too!).
Chris has lost his mind. He's becoming Dan Blather with these bizarre one-liners.
200 more feet of levee has broken.
Does anyone have info about Slidell, LA? We have family there that no one has been able to contact or even find how the town made out other than taking a hard hit.
