Mike,

Thanks for the information regarding the Maison D'Orleans apartments. I spoke with the management company in Auburn, AL. They have also been unable to contact their local management and have no information. They promise to call me the minute they know something and I'll share everything I learn with your blog.

On another note, do you know of a website bulletin board or something similar to post names of missing and look for names of survivors? If one does not yet exist, and people are interested, I can set one up for people to post pics and info regarding missing friends and relatives.

If there is interest, I'll post an email and web address.

i think this site has been very helpful to many people. you guys need to take care of yourselves, but do not stop posting...it is one link to an area in which there are no links. you are doing important work now. any word whether answering specific requests or not is important to many. the news, in its repititive, "not really telling the story" manner seems of little importance to the fact that you guys aren't going for ratings and headlines. keep bringing it from the streets. it is real, and real seems to be a comfort.

Stacie: I live in Atlanta as well, and I have been in contact with my brother at Keesler AFB because he is able to call out from there - the AFB uses a phone system that bypasses the local phones or something. (??)

Also, I have another friend who just moved to Ocean Springs from Atlanta and she still has her Atlanta cell phone number so she has been able to make some calls. Everyone with a 228 cell phone number is out of luck right now because the cell phone towers are apparently down, or service is just overloaded or something. People just have to be patient until phone service is back.

In general, damage in Biloxi and OS is very bad but most people were able to find safety in their attics or on the roof until the storm passed. I have heard one story of a couple who lived on East Beach in OS whose house collapsed around them but they survived by riding down the street on a piece of plywood.

Hopefully people who lived within a mile or two of the beach evacuated. I really don't understand why anyone living on the beach or close to it would have stayed in their house when Katrina was predicted to be a cat 5 on Sunday when there was still plenty of time to get out. My sister in law left OS at 6pm on Sunday night and was able to make it to Panama City without too much trouble.

For all those wondering about o.s./gautier, it is bad news. Gautier fared much better inland; those houses along the beach and some bayous were flooded or gone (from what i hear). I talked to relatives in o.s., and it sounds horrifying. I have heard that front beach and east beach are gone; that the bridge is gone. My family live across the highway behind mcdonald's , and 2 of the 3 houses were completely flooded. Another aunt lives just a block from the beach and she got only a foot or so of water. So, go figure. I just pray that if there is another hurricane like this one in my time, that they will leave and come spend the weekend with me. Don't know about downtown o.s. My aunt used to own a shop down there, and it flooded with the littlest amount of rain. That leads me to think that downtown probably did not fare well.

I am a Lt Col from Keesler; for all those looking for information on the base please get into www.keesler.af.mil; nobody sheltering on base was hurt but the base itself was hit very hard, nobody will leave Keesler until Thursday or Friday and they are not recommending ANYBODY currently in the status of evacuee to get there before Friday at least; there is a number for AFP: 800-435-9941 for updated daily info; being said that personally I thank the creators of this page for their work especially in this times of crisis. Thanks.

I just checked out the aerial coverage on Gulfport and Biloxi on www.wlox.com and it is amazing. One of them lasts 18 minutes. Those of you seeking info on friends and family really need to watch these. You will see close up shots taken from a helicopter of many neighborhoods, and he discusses landmarks so you can figure out where he is. He mentions Ocean Springs, Point Cadet, Long Beach, Beauvoir?, and many other places along with different bridges. You will see areas of beachfront homes that aren't there anymore. Go to www.wlox.com and then go down to like the 3rd box under "Katrina Video Coverage" - these aerial shots may answer a lot of questions for many of you. God Bless-

Re Keesler AFB: Everyone on base and in the hospital are fine. My brother is an ICU nurse there. They did lose power last night b/c the generators were flooded, but they are managing.

Re: Ocean Springs: Front beach and East beach are devastated with many homes completely gone. Downtown OS is very badly damaged. The Biloxi-OS bridge is gone, as was posted on the blog. Many OS homes that survived Camille are gone. Basically, any building within a mile of the beach is likely to be severely damaged.

Homes in Fort Bayou and Parktown East look mainly okay from what I've been told, and most of the other areas north of 90 seem to be okay, except for some flooding. A friend who lives off the OS-Vancleave road behind the OS hospital said most of the houses in that area looked okay.

Re St. Andrews area southeast of OS: I think the one road to that area is almost certainly flooded. You have to go through several swamps to get to St. Andrews and those roads flood even in minor hurricanes. I imagine that anyone in St. Andrews will be stuck there for a while. I grew up right outside St. Andrews and that is a low lying *mandatory* evacuation area so I don't understand why anyone would have stayed there during a cat 5 hurricane, but I know that doesn't help you if you have relatives there. Sorry.

Everyone asking about Bay St. Louis and Pass Christian: They have been playing aerial video from those areas on CNN and there is almost total devastation of anything close to the beach. It's going to be a long time before specific info will be available b/c nobody can get in or out b/c of all the debris blocking the roads.

From CNN.com:

"In the small town of Bay St. Louis, search and rescue crews put black marks on homes known to contain bodies because there weren't enough refrigerated trucks to remove the corpses."

Why oh why did people stay in their homes under a mandatory evacuation order for a cat 5 hurricane? This is a rhetorical question, but it's so sad that anyone died when they had plenty of warning and plenty of time to get out of Dodge. The tsunami victims only *wished* they had some warning.

CNN has the only reporter in Pass Christian. They had to go in the back way because Hwy 90/Beach road no longer exists.

The reporter said she can only get to within 3 - 4 blocks of the beach. At that point there is too much debris to continue on. And that basically everything from that point to the beach was gone.

She also said they came up to the back of the Pass Christian Walmart and they could see right through the Walmart to the beach. The reporter said there was a drainage culvert or ditch at the Walmart that was full of Walmart merchandise such as toys, tires and diapers. The reporter said there were also bodies in this drainage ditch with the merchandise.

I'll be watching CNN all night for more news from the Pass.

(If the link doesn't work, go to http://maps.google.com/maps and put the address in. Click on Satellite button to see a great view.)

Last I heard at 6am yesterday was there was 6 inches of water in the house and they were going across the street to the two story house in the middle of the hurricane. You see they have been through Camille and all the other hurricanes so they thought they would be fine. They went out in the middle of the torrential rains into the Cadillac and drove across the street to the two story house.

Well from the second story of that house, my Gran said it looked like the ocean was just rushing by and never had they seen anything so powerful and frightening in their lives. A huge old tree crushed the car they drove across the street to get to this two story house. That house stood but all the other houses on Oak Leaf Circle are gone except from some of the roofs standing on what look like splintered sticks.

Family from Florida drove out and picked up Gran and Aunt Grace without difficulty and they are well. Uncle Wayne stayed behind to help with the clean-up in Gulfport as he works in the hospital there.

It seems surreal that they went from apocalypse to Florida within 24 hours.

My parents made it home to northern Hancock county, just ten minutes outside of the Kiln. They say the damage there is not too bad, but 603 is completely impassable. I just can't recognize the pictures they're showing on TV. I'm so sorry for anyone who is waiting to hear from people in the area... I haven't heard from many people outside my immediate family, and even then communication is infrequent and hard to make out.
