I can't stop watching the news or reading obsessively about the hurricane damage. They are now beginning to evacute everyone from the city, even those in shelters. They're advising parents who already evacuated to enroll their children in the local schools, since it will be months before they can move home. FEMA is establishing a permanent office in New Orleans, and predicts that clean up will take so long that some people will spend their entire career working only on the damage caused by Katrina. It is being called the greatest natural disaster in the history of the nation.
Now would be a good time to donate or, if like me you have more time than money, to volunteer.
