Katrina Live Thread, Part XIII
Various ^ | 1 September 2005 | Various

Posted on 09/01/2005 3:46:26 PM PDT by NautiNurse

28,000 National Guard troops are deployed to the disaster areas in Mississippi, Alabama, and to Louisiana, where SWAT teams are working to combat the looters and shooters in New Orleans. Additional 1400 National Guard troops are being deployed daily.

Shootings reported at a New Orleans hospital, rescue boats, and a military helicopter, while conditions continue to deteriorate at the SuperDome amid refugee deaths and chaos. Evacuation of New Orleans continues.

House Speaker Dennis Hastert has voiced serious doubts about rebuilding New Orleans with federal funds, while assuring the people of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida that the United States Congress stands ready to help them in their time of need. New Orleans Mayor C. Ray Nagin issued a "desperate SOS."

Doctors at two desperately crippled hospitals in New Orleans called The Associated Press Thursday morning pleading for rescue, "We have been trying to call the mayor's office, we have been trying to call the governor's office ... we have tried to use any inside pressure we can. We are turning to you. Please help us," said Dr. Norman McSwain, chief of trauma surgery at Charity Hospital, the largest of two public hospitals.

The Port of New Orleans is now open to shallow draft vessels. Congress is reconvening in an emergency session. International offers to assist the U.S. have been received from Russia, Japan, Canada, France, Honduras, Germany, Venezuela, Jamaica, Australia, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Greece, Hungary, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Mexico, China, South Korea, Israel, the United Arab Emirates, NATO and the Organization of American States.

Jesse Jackson has arrived in Louisiana...

Anyone watching NBC news?

I found the video to be appaling.

It is hard to believe this is happening in America.

Navy Personnel and Family Member Helpline for Hurricane Katrina Relief Information

1-877-414-5358


Bureau of Naval Personnel has set up a 24 hour helpline for both Sailors and families to call for information regarding their loved ones. This line will be staffed 24 hours by active duty Navy volunteers and will have connectivity with Navy, FEMA and other government agencies. They will try their very best to answer questions regarding the status of Navy family members, but please be aware that communication in the region is still inconsistent.

How can we help to ensure that all these displaced people can eventually be employed in the areas of their relocation in jobs that are now taken by the illegals?

Thanks, just heard the last part of a replay of Nagin as he called a radio program. 870 WWL. He called for a moratorium on press conferences, used the gd word several times. Was really mad about no one being arrested, and yet seeing the gov on TV all the time. Wants something done now! Just wondering if anyone else heard the entire call.

The reason employers are likely to hire illegals is due to the fact that often their alternative is to hire folks such as those that are rioting right now. Better a docile illegal than and urban American thug.
