Sorry about the dropoff. We write when power and connection allows. The generator is back up thanks to the amazing work of the tech guys. Praise be to them.
Took the first walk around- the rats coming out of their holes. Destruction is everywhere and in many cases it is complete.
Looters/scavengers are walking the roads with bags of liquor and radios.
Our neighborhood bar used to be three or four doors north of the Gulf of Mexico. It would still be three or four doors if there were any doors left. The wall that used to separate it from the next place south was taken out. I could see the Gulf straight through the side of the place.
The local TV station was basically torn apart. Wind and trees sliced satellite dishes into shreds and power lines are hanging everywhere.
Martial law is in effect and the National Guard is about to roll through. They better get here soon or this nice southern town is going to rip itself apart.
Reports come through the scanner say hundreds of people trapped and bodies in sunken boats. As far as I know it is too early to start understanding how bad it is.
I pulled a circuit breaker box cover off of a light pole. I thought it was lighter because it was crumbled like tin and bent lengthwise. It weighed fifty pounds and was made of steel.
We'll post some photos in a bit.

Where are you in Gpt? My dad lives in Bayou View do you know anything about the area? The phones do not work, and I don't know what to expect.

Thanks,
Stacy

Do you have any info on Long Beach? My daughter lives in Arbor Station Apartments. Are they still standing? She and family left for Pensacola and are fine but want news about their home.

Is it really right to call people getting food & potable liquids looters? Without refrigeration the food will/is spoiling. It seems better to use it than leave it to rot.Admittedly liquor is not helpful but even mixers could keep suffering from thirst or dehydration at bay for a while. I suppose that waiting for relief services to come is the proper thing to do - one would have to have a lot of faith in sweltering heat to eschew using products available immediately.

I am so very sorry for all losses being experienced in Mississippi, Lousiana, and Alabama.

What is so disappointing is that the first thing that comes in to the mind of many is to steal, destroy, and damage their city versus going out and trying to help somebody be saved or just help with clean up. The looters (not referring to those just trying to food, water, diapers)are examples of the very worst in our society. But, we are very fortunate that GOOD, KIND, and CARING people out number the riff raff.
