Internet coming in sporadically. Exhausted. Will try to check comments later tonight after deadline passes.
Just got back from Waveland in Hancock County, on the border with Louisiana. Everything south of the CSX railroad tracks has been destroyed. Nothing left standing. Gas is leaking from pipes. Absolutely nothing left. Churches, schools, houses and the city hall, not a brick or board left in place.
Ask questions and we'll try to answer them.

I'm so thankful that you are able to be doing this, we all know you're tired. I was so happy to read that the national guard is there. My sister and her family (the Anglins) is on Klein Road in a church, hopefully not trapped. Is Three Rivers Rd open? Thank you again for helping people!
Kind Regards,

I stumbled on your blog today and it's made for moving reading especially as I was aware of the outcome even when reading your excited posts as you set out on what unfortunately didn't stay a "big adventure". My thoughts are with you and all those who are affected by Katrina.
Regards from the UK

Just want to thank you for your efforts in keeping people updated. Please stay safe and know that bazillions of people all over the world are praying and sending money to assist w/the efforts on the coast.

If you know of a way someone could help displaced animals, and you have a moment, would you please post the info here? I'm in Alabama and I'd be happy to foster some animals.

God's Speed,

Steph

Thank you so much for reporting on what is happening down there. I am on Active Duty overseas and have been tearing my hair out trying to find out information about my girlfriend. She is ok (thank God!) and is up at her parent's house in Hattiesburg, but she worries about what she is coming home to. She lives off DeBuys Rd in the Oak Grove apartments (near your station). Has the water reached that far up? Has the Guard been able to stem the looting?

Thank you for your dedicated Service! Stay Safe! I pray for everyone down there and my heart goes out to the families who are still searching... God Bless.

Hello,

I was wondering what the condition of the city is north of Pass Road? My dad's house is at Pass Road & Belvedere and I haven't heard from him since.

Thank god you guys are okay. Stay safe, don't do anything stupid.

Blogs like yours are a godsend for the rest of us in the country who can only go by what the news tells us. The images are horrendous, your daily postings very moving.

You have the prayers of everyone.

Can you find out anything about Wiggins, MS? A friend in Lucedale, MS said Wiggins was hit pretty hard. Can't find out anything beyond that.

I think WLOX has pics of Chevron and it's all flooded.

Long Beach is hit or miss, but whatever is below the tracks is pretty much destroyed.

Want to know where our government was? Bush on vacation at the rance 3 days after, Vice Prez...who ever knows??? Most Shocking third in command..Sec of State Condoleeza Rice, on vacation was spotted 2 days after Katrina hit at Farragamo on 5th Avenue, New York purchasing a pair of multi-thousand dollar shoes. When a woman raised her voice at her and said" how dare you buy shoes when thousands are dying and homeless" Condoleeza had her removed from the store by security. Then she went to a Broadway show! Want to know the qualifications of the Bush appointed head of FEMA. Check it out...he has no qualifications. He was fired from judging Arabian horses.
