People Who Are Safe

Here's more information on people who evacuated safely...

Margaret Murray is in Baton Rouge.

The McCathy's (Amelia's family) are all fine.

Jonathan Jones' family made it to Mississippi.

Arletta (Natasha's mom) is in New York and will be in Gonzales atthe end of the week. James was able to leave with all the animals and make it to safety.

It's impossible to speculate on the state of people's houses... but I would have to say that everyone I know living on the Eastbank of New Orleans is feeling homeless. Reports coming in suggest that Algiers (where my parents live) is not flooded. there has been wind damage and structural damage in Algiers, but how extensive is not yet known.

The Mayor has ordered a second evacuation of New Orleans. People are being told to not come back to the city for a month. There's more bad news but I don't want to write about it anymore.

Thank you to everyone who has written with kind words and thoughts. It helps.

I'll be trying to get on the computer as often as possible. There are frequent power cuts here in India and the next scheduled one is in 40 minutes. We haven't been able to find a hotel with BBC or CNN so Indian CNBC is all we've got. It is not nice to watch people in suits talk about what stocks and futures are rising because of all the devastation Katrina has left in her wake. But I'll take what I can news is available.

So happy that people got out of the city in time.

I'm worried about the people at the zoo, trying to take care of the animals. Any news out there about them?

Love to everybody...
