I'm going into lurk mode for a while so people with good information can be seen. Prayers for the people of the Gulf Coast, for strength and safety and resilience.

It looks like the scope of this catastrophe is finally being realized. Prayers go out for the people in the area of devastation. And someone needs to tell Senator Mary L. to stop politicizing this and blaming Bush. Her father was a part of the problem in Louisiana.

Reporting in from SW Ohio (greater Cincinnati area) ... heavy rain now falling, no wind, although heavy gusts are expected later. 3 to 4 inches (possibly more) of rain expected in the next 18 hours.

Probably rejoicing that the Great Satan got hit.

Don't expect much help for anyone else but ourselves.

Is he flying in a helicopter over New Orleans to look at the devastion?

Has Saudi Arabia sent financial assistance yet?

It is DISGUSTING how the Democrat Party has sent out talking points to have all democrat interviewerees bashing Bush.

Every democrat who has appeared is just talking down the ecconomy and talking down any hope and especially angling to blame Pres. Bush.

(ie. "Mr." Bush wore the wrong necktie and thus oil prices are going to go up.)

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...


http://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/outlook/day1otlk.html

These tornadoes will pop up rapidly from very small, very fast moving supercells.

SLIDELL NEWS

Sorry--it doesn't seem like good news. Go to www.2theadvocate.com (Baton Rouge paper) and scroll down the right hand side. Under the heading "WBRZ Video" there is a video news report called "Katrina devastates Slidell". Very long and informative.

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?

Anyone?

Any nation?

Any help?

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?

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!).

NN, I've been lurking for days on your threads, getting more and more depressed with the situation....too many memories and connections to NO to enumerate...cousins I haven't heard from...places I know so well...So glad my sister & I were down there last April.

Thanks for all your dedication to keep these threads going.

Bouquets & kudos to you!

The link for Slidell does not work (it's not just overloaded, I don't think).

Does anyone have a link that opens?

Not to excuse that a-hole Matthews, but even the folks who go there (primarily Gulf Shores AL) call it that - and proudly.

I know I hope enough of us here will remember her shameful behavior when her reelction comes up. You are right, all of the previous city leaders and planners are the problem. This is shameful and criminal the absolute lack of planning for this.
