I will be off line for a few days or so as I'm leaving shortly to help out my in-laws who are in Mississippi without food, water, ice, etc. I'm lucky my assistant Rick here has generators, ice chests, gas cans, chain saws and more so we're headed out shortly to give a hand.

In addition my brother is the General Manager of Ingersoll Rand's New Orleans store and their store is underwater and he's leaving Houston with a trailer load of food, water and more that IR authorized him to purchase to help his employees so we'll be swinging down from MS toward LA to help him and his employees.

He doesn't know how bad his house is, but if there is a luck side to this story his house is on Lake Pontchartrain but on the opposite side of the levee break, the north side. So far he's heard no bad news on his house other than trees are down and fences tore, though he has no visual yet.

Anyway, I've added Red Cross banners for those that want to help our fellow Americans via the Red Cross, the link takes you to their pages, so please donate even if it's five dollars. My family will be fine, they are all alive but others weren't so lucky, so please help them out.

If you need any help while I'm gone, cause I doubt I'll have Internet connection, contact Mark or any of the admins. My email maybe slow, but I hope to be back in a few days so bear with me, please say a few prayers for those families in much more dire straits... thanks, rg sends!

Blessings to you all Rolando. Watching the news coverage of this disaster sends shudders down my spine. My deepest prayers are with you, your family and to all the residents who've suffered this brutal storm.

From the news footage, it appears that side of the canal is pretty much dry now, it's fairly high ground so w/o the levee breaks, it shouldn't be too bad. My house on the other hand, is probably flooded.

Rolando,

Good luck! I just got back a few minutes ago from a quick trip there. I left from Houston and met up with my family outside Baton Rouge. Like you, I brought generators, water and some of the basics. The live on the north shore and were not hit too bad, but the power will be out for weeks. Physically they are fine, but the stress is starting to take its toll there. Be careful! The looting and crime seems to be very high the closer you get to New Orleans.
