All of my family was situated in the areas most affected by Katrina (New Orleans/Slidell/Bogalusa, Louisiana; Gulf Port, Mississippi), and I haven't heard anything from them since the hurricane hit. I think they stayed behind, thinking Katrina wouldn't be this bad, but I'm not sure. I've called the Baton Rouge police department, but they knew little more than I did about what was going on and couldn't offer any phone numbers which might be of help.
I'm asking that if ANYONE at all comes across a list of survivors, deaths, places where people are being sent, or anything at ALL which might help, to please forward me the link or phone number. You can leave a comment on my journal, send me a text, or email me at my lj address.
For those of you who live in the areas affected, or know someone close to you who does, I wish the best. You're all in my prayers.
