  1. RIP my sister, GODSPEED!!

  2. He is truly THE MAN!!! "Put those cotdamn guns down".....Gen. Honore YOU TELL THEM!!! Did you see the NOPD and the State Police looking at him like "who is this man"....BUT THEY PUT THEM DAMN GUNS DOWN THOUGH!!!!
  3. Evacuation bus flips over north of Layfayette, LA!!! It is believed the bus was carrying evacuees from LA to Dallas, TX. Lord please keep them all safe.
  4. What or who is starting these fires? I am watching CNN now and a house is on fire in New Orleans. Please don't tell me that people who survived Katrina and flooding now have to worry about being burned alive in a fire!!!
  5. This is so overwhelming. I am having difficulty sleeping and am having nightmares about this. I have been watching nothing but CNN since Monday. When are they going to evacuate the hospitals!? My God nurses are "bagging" patients in order to help them breathe at Charity hospital. The back-up generators are failing and there are a number of critically ill patients who havent been evacuted yet. I cannot begin to imagine what it must be like there. God please help us......this cannot be happening, it just can't. The morgue is totally under water in the basement of the hospit
  6. How long will it take for that ship to get there, 100miles means what 3 days?? People are dying by the minute , and women are being raped I HATE THE USA 965238[/snapback] Almond, I understand the frustration, but right now I am grasping at straws and being thankful for any effort. I am not certain of how fast those ships travel, but I would hope that if my car can travel 65 miles per hour they can at least keep up with me. In any event, I am glad they are coming. A day ago people were asking where are the ships, and I am only saying they are on there way.
  7. I understand what you mean, Sasha but I believe a lot of the anger at this situation is simply because the United States tends to jump to the aid of other countries and seems to care very little about the situation of it's citizens (black or white). The stop & go rescue effort is going to cost alot of lives and then the finger pointing will begin because no one is going to step up to the plate and say "I messed up and I apologize". The first to go in my opinion (right or wrong) will be the head of FEMA. Now as for what am I doing. I am working hard to get groups of volunteers from
  8. A number of colleges/universities have offered to allow displaced to enroll and have extended the deadlines for them. Rutgers U. has opened it's doors to New Jersey residents who attended schools in the effected areas, so has Columbia University in New York.
  9. The Navy Ship USS Bennett (I may have the name wrong) is 100 miles from Gulfport, MS. This ship is loaded with supplies and has two of the largest transportation helicopters on board. The plan is to start airlifting the surviors onto the ship. Thank God...I have been wondering why they aren't airlifting these people out of New Orleans, damn they did it for Vietnam refugees in the 70's. There are other ships on the way...the USS Comfort (hospital ship) is on it's way it left Baltimore, MD late Tuesday.
  10. The goverment is moving far too slow to assist the refugees.....my God it seems so strange to be calling United States citizen "refugees", but that is truly what they are.
  11. Pentagon orders huge rescue, relief operation Medical disaster teams from across U.S. converge on storm-ravaged region The Associated Press Updated: 11:47 a.m. ET Aug. 31, 2005 WASHINGTON - From Navy ships and Army helicopters to the USNS Comfort hospital ship, the Pentagon is mobilizing possibly an unprecedented rescue-and-relief mission for areas devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Largely coordinated by the U.S. Northern Command, all of the military services are participating in what many say is the largest domestic disaster relief effort in years. The military is mainly provid
  12. Moving dead becomes city's second priority Hurricane Katrina makes one man's final journey difficult to complete The Associated Press Updated: 10:10 a.m. ET Aug. 31, 2005 NEW ORLEANS - When Xavier Bowie died in a flooded neighborhood, his common-law wife did the only thing she could think to do. She wrapped his body in a sheet, laid him on a makeshift bier of two-by-fours and, with a little help, floated him down to the main road. For more than an hour, Evelyn Turner waited along Rampart Street outside the French Quarter, her husband’s body resting on the grassy median as c
  13. New York's finest (NYPD) & bravest (NYFD) are on their way!!!!
  14. glad you are safe, Small! Take care of yourself!
  15. I am seeing more and more of these types of pictures lately.
  16. It is getting worse, the looting is out of control and the Coast Guard is still trying to save the lives of all of those sitting on rooftops and trapped in attics. It broke my heart to see the older man who was cut out of his attack. When his rescuer ask him to hold his breath I thought I would scream out loud -- I couldn't believe this man was in the attic and the water was that high. He was eternally grateful for being rescued, he didn't want to let go of the hand of one of the men who saved his life. I heard on the news this morning that looters were trying to take over a hospital an
  17. oh my damn, the governor is considering evacuating the superdome where some 30,000 people are....no telling when/if they will be allowed to return. this is such a serious situation. oh and the looters are losing their damn minds.....gunshots are being heard around the city. i don't know if the police are shooting or if looters are going into homes thinking they are empty and -- BANG, BANG -- guess it wasn't empty. oh my damn, they had to shoot a seal that washed up in gulfport, ms.....residents were trying to keep the seal wet and comfortable, but the police said they couldn't wor
  18. The zoo's moved a few of them because of the hurricane.
  19. OH MY GOD, CRIMSON, I AM SOOOOOO SORRY! 958550[/snapback] I'm trying not to think the worse until we actually know the damage. A neighbor said that it wasn't that bad and not to the roof but like car door level. But the news said something else (not for my specific street) but aorund the area. I haven't been able to get in touch with the neighbor because of the cell phone problems to see what it has worsen to. 958568[/snapback] awwwwwwwww Crimmy. I feel so bad. I will pray for the best!
