Many people are interested in the Sea Bee base and Keesler. According to reporters who have recently been on the property, they experienced minimal damage. Some Sea Bee's stopped by today and said that it got a little squirrelly during the storm, but everything is ok. And I figure that those boys will have their repairs squared away in record time and will be out on the streets helping civilians.

I meant boys figuratively, by the way. Boys and girls working equally, doing the same good work. Everyone happy? good.

Happy indeed, my friend.

You're doing great work. I'm sitting here chewing fingers, wishing I could help. DAMN I wish I could help. I just wrote a story about some Long Island line crews headed down to Mississppi to help restore power for you all. They should arrive there tonight or tomorrow. The Long Island Power Authority sent about 60 subcontractors -- 30 tree surgeons and 30 linemen. Let's hope they can get some juice flowing.

So far the only useful thing I did was exploit Newsday's person-tracking software the other day and find Zola's phone number so Rachel and I could check and see if you guys were okay. The moms sounded worried but very proud of you.

Best,

Keep the info coming. Many who read this blog such as myself are former residents and still have family and friends that we are praying for. As they say, photos are worth a thousand words and your photos here are wonderful as I've thought of many places. While there during the eighties worked at PACECO on the Gulfport industrial seaway and lived next to tracks on Courthouse Road and off Pass Road where Jitney Jungle use to be and also another place off Pass Road behind a bread outlet store (I forget the local brand). Step son did work at Chapies (sp?)in Long Beach and have spoke with him once after the storm as he and his family left for friends in Pensacola and he's trying to find out if he still has a house remaining in Long Beach.
Again, thanks for this blog spot.

I wrote an angry rant about this storm in my blog, please feel free to check it out at http://crazyasaloon.blogspot.com/

I don't normally advertise my blog, and I am not looking for fame or followers...just an opinion on this that I felt I should say. Thanks for writing first hand information about this. And I am so sorry for this to happen to anyone.

Well there are tidbits of good news like this, but the bulk of the story is a torrent of bad, strange news.

My brother-in-law sent some pics of Keesler during the storm... wind making the rain come down horizontal, water running thru the streets four feet deep... you know... the sort of things that no one wants to ever see. I don't know how to post them or I would.

Glad that you are safe, relatively speaking, Keller. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your pals as well as all of those devastated by the storm. Thank you for your continued efforts to keep us informed. Be safe.

The trial left by katrina has left thousands of people like me, all over the world, speechless.The photographs and news of what is happening in New Orleans and elsewhere, trickling in are shocking. Being from India, nearer to the area where Tsunami had its effect, I can very well empathise with what you people out there are experiencing. One wonders whether this is nature's way of telling us to heed her when we ravish her shredding her dignity. Hope that God gives you all the courage and strength to see through this traumatic experience. Will always remember you in my prayers and hoping that some semblance of normalcy comes soon.

They are sending most of the people at Keesler AFB home. So if you know someone or have family at Keesler they might be coming home in a week or two.

Thank you for this site - I don't think people realize the impact of this disaster and the devastation it has left behind.

I sincerely appreciate what you are doing here. Those people are all my brothers and sisters and we as a family need to pool our resources and efforts to help them as I am certain they would help us.

In the midst of such human tragedy, property is obviously down the list of priorities.

People with State Farm property insurance (or other companies) should, once safe, take steps to make a claim. There may be initial funds available for being displaced.

Contact your agent or if not possible call:

1-800-SFCLAIM (732-5246)

be patient, as the amount of claims is overwhelming.

I just got back from the gulf coast area, Keesler doesn't look pretty. Expect the worst. There are rumors that they're going to shut the whole base down. Permanently.

The hospital is in dreadful shape, and will almost certainly be shut down. The resident program has been closed, and everyone's being sent away from it. You don't want to go there.
