Cries for Help

 

I was evacuated to Arkansas for the storm. In the days following it, my family was glued to the TV and online coverage. I was keeping up with the nola.com forums as people were using it as a bulletin board to locate friends and relatives and to make announcements regarding services. There are hundreds of desperate stories here. The formatting hasn’t survived the transfer to WordPress but the words are still there. Warning: if you’re worried about “triggers” and PTSD don’t scroll down. I have to confess I’ve never made it all the way through this. If you spot a story that means something to you, please point it out in the comments.

Needless to say, I don’t own the copyright to anything posted below but as it’s offered for research, education and commentary I believe the posting falls under the fair use doctrine.

Trapped in Frenchman’s Wharf Apartments?
Name: Donna Maurillo

Home: 831-234-4009

Subject: My Hurricane Story — Trapped in Frenchman’s Wharf Apartments?

Story: Ed VanAuken, a resident of the Frenchman’s Wharf apartment complex, had been emailing me Sunday night. The storm was approaching, and he was trying to be upbeat… his usual silly self.

Unable to leave because he had medical issues and no transportation, he planned out his survival. The water would move away from the buildings into the lagoon. He’d cook up whatever food he had in the freezer. He had a photo of me in a red dress to keep his spirits up. But he couldn’t wait for daylight because a nighttime storm would not allow him to see what kind of danger was approaching.

I last heard from him at 10:30pm local time. He said that if the power went out, we should not expect to hear from him for a week or two. But there were about 70 cars in the parking lot, so he was sure he’d have company. I know he did not expect a flood.

We have not heard from him since then. His family, his friends and I have searched websites, scanned satellite photos, watched every news story, checked news photos, registered his name on every forum we can find, and we keep emailing each other for updates that never come.

Now we wonder if anyone has checked the apartment complex where we are sure he is still waiting for rescue. From the satellite views, we can see that I-10 is submerged. We can see the cars in the parking lot underwater. But the building roofs are visible, so the flood didn’t reach that high.

Is he still waiting there, hoping someone will know he’s unable to get out? Has he survived? We’re still waiting to hear.

Story: My great aunt Kathryn Weaver was in the care of Chalmette Medical Skill unit. My Uncle tried to get her out before the hurricane hit and they refused to release her. My uncle was told that a social worker had not signed Kathryn’s paper work. He offered to have her transnsported and pay. Now they have lost their patients.Five day later Chalmette Medical still has know ideal where she is located or if she even is alive.The Chalmette Medical website hurricane information is updated with workers pay information and nothing to help families locate their loved ones.
My aunt is 81 years of age and needs dialysis treatment.How in America can a week later, patients in the care of a hospital be lost? We can locate criminals with tracking bracelets, find stolen cars with Lo Jack, and Identify stollen live stock with planted chips; Yet Chalmette Medical can not locate patients in their care. They knew the Hurricane was coming! Chalmette has failed their patients,their community and the patients loved ones. I am sure if she had “ON Star” on her wheel chair she would have been located by now!!
Any information regarding critical care Chalmette patients please email : Contactus@Lord.cc May God be with all your families during this very trying time. contactus@Lord.cc or George@Lord.cc

Resident report on Waveland and Bay St. Louis
9:13 pm

Name: Charles Simon

Home: 2252292285

Email: cnsimon@msn.com

Subject: My Hurricane Story — A Visit to Ground Zero (Waveland and Bay St. Louis)

Story: Today, I took Jan’s parents to Bay St. Louis to see their house for the first time since the hurricane hit. As we drove from Baton Rouge towards the Mississippi line we saw the damage increase in severity. When we got to Slidell it was a war zone. Around airport road the damage was incredible. Trees on houses, houses with no roofs, it looked like a bulldozer had been flown over the area at about 15 ft above the ground. The closer we got to Mississippi the more severe the damage. At the Mississippi welcome center there were trees down all over the place but no apparent damage to the welcome center itself. When we got to the Waveland / kiln exit, I noticed there was a water line on the overpass about 1 ft below the highest point of the overpass. At that point I started to feel a level of dread overwhelm me. There was a thick layer of mud all over the place, the damage was indescribable, the hotel, and gas stations near the exit looked as if a wrecking ball had played ping!
pong for a while… as we drove toward the coast, we saw 50 to 100 cars on the side of the road on both sides. They were on their sides, upside down, on top of each other. I started to ask why there were so many cars here and Jan’s mom said that the people that live along the canals and bayous in the area normally drive their cars up to the highway before a storm so that they won’t get flooded out. Jan’s mom stated she hoped that it didn’t mean that they had stayed during the storm, I fear that she may be right and that they were still back among the bayous and canals somewhere..
As we approached Hwy 90, and the Waveland area I was aghast as there wasn’t a single building in town that didn’t look to be undamaged. The water along hwy 90 during the storm was over the roofs of most of the buildings in town. The staff of the hospital had reported seeing fish, snakes and other things in the water out the windows of the second floor during the hurricane.
We continued to drive towards Jan’s parents’ house; we turned down the road towards Casino Magic. We saw a couple sweeping mud out of there house. On felicity, the road had narrowed to a single lane. Both sides of road were blocked with debris; the mud was thick, and slippery. There was a telephone pole with 4 electric transformers broken half up the pole and the transformers were dangling over the road.

As we turned in the subdivision we saw a man moving items out of his house and stacking them in the yard. They were muddy, soggy and ruined. We drove up in the driveway of the house and all appeared to be fine from the outside. There was a tree down in the front yard, all the shingles were intact on the roof, and Jan’s Dad’s car was parked under the carport. Things looked almost normal. I backed into the driveway and got ready to find out for sure. Walked around the house and looked for any obvious damage, none really stuck out. Opened the glass outer door of the front door and immediately noticed that the front door was gone. The door wasn’t blown open, it was just gone. The inside of the door frame had been ripped clean off and the door was nowhere to be seen.

Inside the house, it was a totally different picture from the outside. The house was turned inside out. All the ceiling sheetrock and insulation was lying all over the house. The house had been flooded all the way up to the rafters. The living room /dining room was not even distinguishable as such… there was debris all over the place. The dining room table was upside down on top of a chair on one side. The standup freezer had rolled over and was not face down on the floor. The kitchen cabinets had fallen off the walls and the contents strewn all over the place. The refrigerator had turned upside down and was sitting on top of a kitchen chair. If you looked up into the attic you could see containers items dripping water. Bags that once stored clothes or other belongings were bloated with water. Trying to enter each room to inspect was a challenge by itself. I could not get into the master bedroom because the furniture had rearranged itself and there was a dresser about 4 inches!
away from the door and it was wedged against the bed. The room could not be entered. The back bedroom was just as ugly. The bed had floated and landed onto of the chair that once sat in the corner. The house was a total loss. It will have to be gutted down to the wall studs.

We loaded up a few pieces of clothing, a set of golf clubs and a tool box. That’s about all that could be salvaged. Once loaded we changed clothes as our clothes were covered with grime and mud from moving around inside the house.

We left and headed down the road towards the Waveland Police Department, I wanted to check on two friends of mine that are Waveland Police Officers. In talking to the officers sitting outside the station under a canopy, I learned that my friends had left town prior to the storm. They had not been heard from since but are assumed to be safe. The National Guard was in town and had set up camp right off hwy 90. There were numerous search and rescue teams in town and each had set up a camp somewhere in town. The National Guard was directing people into the parking lot of the Winn Dixie where water, ice and food were being handed out. The parking lot of the Wal-Mart had been turned into command and control center. The National Guard was controlling access. There were people camping in parking lots all over the place. State farm had set up a tent and were taking claims.

Leaving town and driving down hwy 90 towards interstate 10 we witnessed more damage. Boats sitting in the middle of the road. A large Uhaul truck with the backend balancing on a fence post. A house had been pulled off its foundation and separated from its fireplace. Both still standing but not touching each other.

I’m back in Baton Rouge now and thinking back about what I saw. I saw ground zero and the impression I got from seeing all this was that order had been restored and that the recovery process had begun. There was a lot of damage and a lot of work was yet to be done…

We have been trying for days to get through to the numbers they provide on television to call for a rescue. My aunt apparently just got through to the Coast Guard today. I am praying that they do go rescue my family as they told me that they were putting them on a priority list since my grandfather is elderly and in frail condition. I also went to the River Center in Baton Rouge Friday afternoon to check the list of refugees and it was very disorganized. My family was not on the list, but I was told that it was not accurate. The list that was compiled had refugees from all the area Baton Rouge Shelters supposedly. I also was given a website address to check for updates on the people in shelters but the website does not exist.

Hopefully this number will help other people to find their loved ones. I have been looking for my father in law that was moved from a nursing home in Kenner since Wednesday. Finally this evening I found him after calling this number.

Story: From Chicago Sun Times:

Daley ‘shocked’ as feds reject aid

September 3, 2005, Chicago Sun Times

BY STEPHANIE ZIMMERMANN AND SCOTT FORNEK Staff Reporters

A visibly angry Mayor Daley said the city had offered emergency, medical and technical help to the federal government as early as Sunday to assist people in the areas stricken by Hurricane Katrina, but as of Friday, the only things the feds said they wanted was a single tank truck.

That truck, which the Federal Emergency Management Agency requested to support an Illinois-based medical team, was en route Friday.

“We are ready to provide more help than they have requested. We are just waiting for their call,” said Daley, adding that he was “shocked” that no one seemed to want the help.

Meanwhile, U.S. Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) said he would call for congressional hearings into the federal government’s preparations and response.

“The response was achingly slow, and that, I think, is a view shared by Democrats, Republicans, wealthy and poor, black and white,” the freshman senator said. “I have not met anybody who has watched this crisis evolve over the last several days who is not just furious at how poorly prepared we appeared to be.”

Response ‘baffling’

The South Side Democrat called FEMA’s slow response “baffling.”

“I don’t understand how you could have a situation where you’ve got several days’ notice of an enormous hurricane building in the Gulf Coast, you know that New Orleans is 6 feet below sea level. … The notion that you don’t have good plans in place just does not make sense,” Obama said.

Obama said he expects his counterparts in Louisiana, Mississippi or Alabama will call for congressional hearings, but he is ready if they do not. “It’s heartbreaking and infuriating and, I think, is embarrassing to the American people.”

Daley said the city offered 36 members of the firefighters’ technical rescue teams, eight emergency medical technicians, search-and-rescue equipment, more than 100 police officers as well as police vehicles and two boats, 29 clinical and 117 non-clinical health workers, a mobile clinic and eight trained personnel, 140 Streets and Sanitation workers and 29 trucks, plus other supplies. City personnel are willing to operate self-sufficiently and would not depend on local authorities for food, water, shelter and other supplies, he said.

Flanked at a Friday press conference by a who’s who from city government, religious organizations and business, the mayor also announced formation of the Chicago Helps Fund for storm victims.

“I’m calling upon every resident of Chicago to donate what they can afford, whether it’s 50 cents or 50 dollars,” the mayor said.

People can make tax-deductible cash or check donations at any of Bank One’s 330 Chicago area branches or by check at Chicago Helps, c/o Bank One, 38891 Eagle Way, Chicago 60678-1388. A phone line to take credit card donations will be set up.

Churches were urged to take up collections this Sunday, and firefighters are planning to collect at major intersections this weekend.

In addition, donations will be taken at this weekend’s Jazz Fest in Grant Park, and $2 of every ticket purchased through Ticketmaster for the Chicago Classic football game at Soldier Field today will go to hurricane relief. The Shedd Aquarium announced it will donate $1 from every ticket sold this holiday weekend to relief efforts and has set up “donation stations” at the aquarium.

Homeless shelters enlisted

By midday Friday, Inner Voice, a private agency that runs 27 homeless shelters for the city, had rounded up space in unused facilities for about 2,000 storm refugees, should they need it, said president Brady Harden.

Ed Shurna, executive director of the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, suggested the city tap recently vacated units at Cabrini-Green and Lathrop Homes that were slated for demolition but still have heat and electricity available.

Daley reiterated that students from stricken areas are welcome to enroll in the Chicago Public Schools and in the City Colleges. Cardinal Francis George on Friday asked that Catholic schools in the archdiocese waive tuition for displaced children.

More than 400 students have applied to Loyola University Chicago, most coming from its sister Jesuit school, Loyola University New Orleans. Half had been admitted as of late afternoon Friday. Spokeswoman Maeve Kiley said the school “will honor their tuition that they already paid.”

University of Illinois campuses in Urbana-Champaign and Chicago have admitted more than 100 students, including two foreign students who had Fulbright scholarships to attend Tulane.

Northeastern said it would waive tuition and fees for Illinois residents who already paid another school, and would grant in-state tuition to out-of-state students. Northwestern plans to let students pay what they would have at their original school and forward the money to that school.

She said there were 8 people there total, including 3 children (one of which is 3 months old). She said they siphoned all available gasoline to fuel a generator hooked to a freezer. They were draining apartment hot water heaters for drinking water. They took soft drinks from the school and food from everyone’s freezer in the apt complex. They were fine on Wednesday, but worried about the infant and worried about medications and the eventuality of food and water running out. The Jefferson Parish emergency number is working.

They do have shelter and are all in relatively good health for now, but they have a very limited supply of food and water.

They are all afraid to move to the buses at the Superdome or Convention Center. They have limited communications and are NOT fully aware of the situation outside the neighborhood. They need help to get out.

The National Guard is in town, but are assisting other parts of the city. Those in the French Quarter are venturing out to find supplies for the neighbors. This area is in need of immediate relief.

If someone in the city can get the word out, please. They’re not alone in the neighborhood. Other tourists are stuck in hotels. If anyone gets information about when this area is supposed to get relief, please let me know!

The Positive Stories Must Get Out
Name: Robert LeBlanc

Home: 9858769172

Email: rlrenrec@aol.com

Subject: My Hurricane Story — The Positive Stories Must Get Out

Story: Please help me to get this story out. We need to get the truth out and these people helped.

Jeff Rau, a family and now personal friend to whom I will forever be linked, and I were volunteering with a boat and pulling people out of the water on Wednesday. I have a first-hand experience of what we encountered. In my opinion, everything that is going on in the media is a complete bastardization of what is really happening. The result is that good people are dying and losing family members. I have my own set of opinions about welfare and people working to improve thier own lot instead of looking for handouts, but what is occurring now is well beyond those borders. These people need help and need to get out. We can sort out all of the social and political issues later, but human beings with any sense of compassion would agree that the travesty that is going on here in New Orleans needs to end and people’s lives need to be saved and families need to be put back together. Now.

I will tell you that I would probably disagree with most of the people that still need to be saved on political, social, and cultural values. However, it must be noted that these people love thier friends and families like I do, desire to live like I do, and care for their respective communities (I was even amazed at the site of seemingly young and poor black people caring for sickly and seemingly well-to-do white people and tourists still needing evacuation from New Orleans’ downtown area) the same way I care for mine.

Eight people in particular who stood out during our rescue and whose stories deserve to be told:

1.) We were in motor boats all day ferrying people back and forth approximately a mile and a half each way (from Carrolton down Airline Hwy to the Causeway overpass). Early in the day, we witnessed a black man in a boat with no motor paddling with a piece of lumber. He rescued people in the boat and paddled them to safety (a mile and a half). He then, amidst all of the boats with motors, turned around and paddled back out across the mile and a half stretch to do his part in getting more people out. He refused to give up or occupy any of the motored boat resources because he did not want to slow us down in our efforts. I saw him at about 5:00 p.m., paddling away from the rescue point back out into the neighborhoods with about a half mile until he got to the neighborhood, just two hours before nightfall. I am sure that his trip took at least an hour and a half each trip, and he was going back to get more people knowing that he’d run out of daylight. He did all of this wit! h a t!
wo-by-four.

2.) One of the groups that we rescued were 50 people standing on the bridge that crosses over Airline Hwy just before getting to Carrolton Ave going toward downtown. Most of these people had been there, with no food, water, or anyplace to go since Monday morning (we got to them Wed afternoon) and surrounded by 10 feet of water all around them. There was one guy who had been there since the beginning, organizing people and helping more people to get to the bridge safely as more water rose on Wednesday morning. He did not leave the bridge until everyone got off safely, even deferring to people who had gotten to the bridge Wed a.m. and, although inconvenienced by loss of power and weather damage, did have the luxury of some food and some water as late as Tuesday evening. This guy waited on the bridge until dusk, and was one of the last boats out that night. He could have easily not made it out that night and been stranded on the bridge alone.

3.) The third story may be the most compelling. I will not mince words. This was in a really rough neighborhood and we came across five seemingly unsavory characters. One had scars from what seemed to be gunshot wounds. We found these guys at a two-story recreational complex, one of the only two-story buildings in the neighborhood. They broke into the center and tried to rustle as many people as possible from the neighborhood into the center. These guys stayed outside in the center all day, getting everyone out of the rec center onto boats. We approached them at approximately 6:30 p.m., obviously one of the last trips of the day, and they sent us further into the neighborhood to get more people out of homes and off rooftops instead of getting on themselves. This at the risk of their not getting out and having to stay in the water for an undetermined (you have to understand the uncertainly that all of the people in these accounts faced without having any info on the resc! ue ef!
forts, how far or deep the flooding was, or where to go if they want to swim or walk out) amount of time. These five guys were on the last boat out of the neighborhood at sundown. They were incredibly grateful, mentioned numerous times ‘God is going to bless y’all for this’. When we got them to the dock, they offered us an Allen Iverson jersey off of one of their backs as a gesture of gratitude, which was literally probably the most valuable possession among them all. Obviously, we declined, but I remain tremendously impacted by this gesture.

I don’t know what to do with all of this, but I think we need to get this story out. Some of what is being portrayed among the media is happening and is terrible, but it is among a very small group of people, not the majority. They make it seem like New Orleans has somehow taken the atmosphere of the mobs in Mogadishu portrayed in the book and movie “Black Hawk Down,” which is making volunteers (including us) more hesitant and rescue attempts more difficult. As a result, people are dying. My family has been volunteering at the shelters here in Houma and can count on one hand the number of people among thousands who have not said “Thank You.” or “God Bless You.” Their lives shattered and families torn apart, gracious just to have us serve them beans and rice.

If anything, these eight people’s stories deserve to be told, so that people across the world will know what they really did in the midst of this devastation. So that it will not be assumed that they were looting hospitals, they were shooting at helicopters. It must be known that they, like many other people that we encountered, sacrificed themselves during all of this to help other people in more dire straits than their own.

It is also important to know that this account is coming from someone who is politically conservative, believes in capitalism and free enterprise, and is traditionally against many of the opinions and stances of activists like Michael Moore and other liberals on most of the hot-topic political issues of the day. Believe me, I am not the political activist. This transcends politics. This is about humanity and helping mankind. We need to get these people out. Save their lives. We can sort out all of the political and social issues later. People need to know the truth of what is going on at the ground level so that they know that New Orleans and the people stranded there are, despite being panicked and desperate, gracious people and they deserve the chance to live. They need all of our help, as well.

This is an accurate account of things. Jeffery Rau would probably tell the same exact stories.

Regards,
Robert LeBlanc

Story: I live in Oregon, but like Americans all over the country, I’ve been horrified and heartbroken by the news stories from New Orleans, a city I’ve always loved not only for its beauty but for the warm-heartedness of its citizens.

Finally, this morning, I’d had enough. I emailed Mark C. Smith, Public Information Officer at the Louisiana Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Preparedness. I thought you might be interested in his response to what I had to say. Note especially the description of the Convention Center as “not an approved site”!

I don’t understand why you aren’t moving heaven and earth to get water IMMEDIATELY to the refugees in the N.O. Convention Center. As of this
morning, according to NBC news reports, they STILL DON’T HAVE WATER, two babies have died already of dehydration, and more will die today if they don’t get water and formula.

There is no excuse not to do WHATEVER IS NEEDED, be it air-drops or armed convoys. It is TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE for American babies to die of dehydration.

RITZ-CARLTON NOW M.A.S.H – DRS “LOOT” WALGREENS PHARMACY UNDER ARMED POLICE ESCORT

Story: RITZ-CARLTON NOW M.A.S.H – DRS “LOOT” WALGREENS PHARMACY UNDER ARMED POLICE ESCORT

Thanks to all of you who have sent your notes of concern and your prayers. I am writing this note on Tuesday at 2PM . I wanted to update all of you as to the situation here. I don’t know how much information you are getting but I am certain it is more than we are getting. Be advised that almost everything I am telling you is from direct observation or rumor from reasonable sources. They are allowing limited internet access, so I hope to send this dispatch today.

Personally, my family and I are fine. My family is safe in Jackson, MS, and I am now a temporary resident of the Ritz Carleton Hotel in New Orleans. I figured if it was my time to go, I wanted to go in a place with a good wine list. In addition, this hotel is in a very old building on Canal Street that could and did sustain little damage. Many of the other hotels sustained significant loss of windows, and we expect that many of the guests may be evacuated here.

Things were obviously bad yesterday, but they are much worse today. Overnight the water arrived. Now Canal Street (true to its origins) is indeed a canal. The first floor of all downtown buildings is underwater. I have heard that Charity Hospital and Tulane are limited in their ability to care for patients because of water. Ochsner is the only hospital that remains fully functional. However, I spoke with them today and they too are on generator and losing food and water fast. The city now has no clean water, no sewerage system, no electricity, and no real communications. Bodies are still being recovered floating in the floods. We are worried about a cholera epidemic. Even the police are without effective communications. We have a group of armed police here with us at the hotel that are admirably trying to exert some local law enforcement. This is tough because looting is now rampant. Most of it is not malicious looting. These are poor and desperate people with no housing and n!
o medical care and no food or water trying to take care of themselves and their families. Unfortunately, the people are armed and dangerous. We hear gunshots frequently. Most of Canal street is occupied by armed looters who have a low threshold for discharging their weapons. We hear gunshots frequently. The looters are using makeshift boats made of pieces of styrofoam to access. We are still waiting for a significant national guard presence.

The health care situation here has dramatically worsened overnight. Many people in the hotel are elderly and small children. Many other guests have
Have unusual diseases. They are unfortunately . ‘We have better medical letter. There are ID physicians in at this hotel attending an HiV confection. We have commandered the world famous French Quarter Bar to turn into an makeshift clinic. There is a team of about 7 doctors and PA and pharmacists. We anticipate that this will be the major medical facility in the central business district and French Quarter.

Our biggest adventure today was raiding the Walgreens on Canal under police escort. The pharmacy was dark and fool of water. We basically scooped the entire drug sets into gargace bags and removed them. All uner police excort. The looters had to be held back at gun point. After a dose of prophylactic Cipro I hope to be fine.

In all we are faring well. We have set up a hospital in the the French Qarter bar in the hotel, and will start admitting patients today. Many with be from the hotel, but many with not. We are anticipating to dealing with multiple medical problems, medications and and acute injuries. Infection and perhaps even cholera are anticipated major problems. Food and water shortages are iminent.

The biggest question to all of us is where is the national guard. We hear jet fignters and helicopters, but no real armed presence, and hence the rampant looting. There is no Red Cross and no salvation army.

In a sort of cliché way, this is an edifying experience. Once is rapidly focused away from the transient and material to the bare necessities of life. It has been challenging to me to learn how to be a primary care phyisican. We are under martial law so return to our homes is impossible. I don’t know how long it will be and this is my greatest fear. Despite it all, this is a soul edify experience. The greatest pain is to think about the loss. And how long the rebuid will. And the horror of so many dead people .

PLEASE SEND THIS DISPATCH TO ALL YOU THING MA Y BE INTERSTED IN A DISPATCH From the front. I will send more according to your interest. Hopefully their collective prayers will be answered. By the way suture packs, sterile gloves and stethoscopes will be needed as the Ritz turns into a MASH

UNO student missing

Email: susanmontez12@yahoo.com

Subject: My Hurricane Story — Missing UNO student

Story: This is not my story, but rather I am helping to get the story out. This is the story:
Cody Siragusa, a 19 year-old freshman attending the University of New Orleans as a music student, was somehow overlooked in the school?s total evacuation before Katrina achieved landfall. He spent Sunday night entirely alone on the 7th floor of his empty dorm building, Bienville Hall at 2000 Lake Shore Drive, which is located in a very hard to reach, flooded area of Orleans Parish, directly to the south of the Lake Ponchartrain Levee and near the industrial canal. As frightening as this experience must have been for him, according to his father, who had a brief, 5-minute cell phone communication on Monday morning, he was an angel of mercy to a dozen not-so lucky, frightened and disparate citizens, along with several animals he also found in distress. He and another young man in an oar-less rowboat plucked all from the water and pulled them to the relative safety of his building on the campus, where he set up an impromptu refugee camp by providing shelter and sharing what meager food and water he had. He told his dad he eventually decided to break into the vending machines for sustenance.That was Monday and he has not been heard from since. There were several elderly and non-English speaking persons of all races with him who had been expelled from their homes. I am trying to put out the word to as many places possible that he and his displaced group might still be trapped in the building, awaiting rescue. He is a 5?-11?, Caucasian, with light red hair and a scraggly beard by now, no doubt. His parents have sent word of his whereabouts and a description to every University, city, state, and federal government or relief agency, ANY organization they thought might increase the chance of finding him. I am sending this missive out to the universe as an affirmative prayer for his safe return and for the welfare of all the victims of this previously unthinkable human tragedy. May we all find our way back home.His parents can be reachedatpetergoose@earthlink.net in Glendale California.From Cody?s loving friend,

Medical staff from Superdome now in
Name: Karen Legrand

Email: karen.legrand@ieminc.com

Subject: My Hurricane Story — Medical staff from Superdome now in
Hyatt

Story: My mother is a doctor, and works for the city of New Orleans.
She was told to report to work at the Superdome at 7AM on Sunday 8/28.
Over my objections, she did. We have gotten 4 calls from her on her
cell phone since then. The first was Monady afternoon, when she was very
reassuring. The second was Thursday morning when she called to notify
us that they had moved the medical staff to the Hyatt Regency because
“the security situation was deteriorating in the Superdome”. She
thought they were going to send an armored bus to evacuate them to Baton
Rouge, where I am. She was still quite calm, but she said she was the only
person there with a cell phone that still worked. The third was
Thursday night around 9PM, at which time she asked us to try to put pressure
on the governor’s office, or somebody, to try to get them out. She
called back again at 4:30 on Friday to ask that we try to do something to
get food and water to the Hyatt. Apparently the State Police are in
charge of the people at the Hyatt.

Alex Chilton Missing
Family and friends of musician Alex Chilton (lead singer for 1970s powerpop band Big Star and 1960s rock group the Box Tops) have not been able to locate him since late Monday when he was last heard from alive at his house in New
Orleans after the initial storm before the phones in the area went down. His sister in Memphis and friends are very worried because people are now dying in New Orleans from exposure and he has still not been able to get to a place to
contact his family and friends. It is believed he may possibly be waiting to be evacuated in the French Quarter, which was within walking distance of his home. Please contact spadeandsparrow@aol.com with any information about his
condition.

Trapped in Charity Hospital Hell

Subject: My Hurricane Story — Trapped in Charity Hospital Hell
Story: My brother John has been pleading on national news programs for help. There are 1200 patients, doctors, nurses and hospital personnel trapped in Charity Hospital. Surrounded by 5 feet of water that has become dangerous to even swim through, these people have had no electricity since 5:00 a.m, Monday. Why is their plight no worse than others? This hospital is trying to keep their patients alive without any technology available other than manual means and perseverance.
They’ve lost patients just because there is no electricity. They’re having to stack the dead bodies outside on balconies because the disease and stench could cause more health problems that these people don’t need at this time.
Their food and water is almost gone. Green beans and a cup of water is the common menu for the day. The toilets don’t work – more health problems.
Coast Guard attempted to move about 30 critical care patients out yesterday–transport by boat to Tulane Medical Center accross the street and then up flights of stairs to a helipad for evacuation. Looters shot at the vehicles attempting this transport and the guard had to stop evacuations for fear of life.

Subject: My Hurricane Story — FEMA and Red Cross
Story: Evacuated as governmental officials requested. In Little Rock called the Little Rock American Red Cross for some assistance. They told me I could go to a shelter. When I inquired about temporaary housing, etc.,vouchers they told me I had to go to the Am Red Cross in New Orleans where the disaster occurred. I explained we were not being allowed back there and were trying to get our lives going they offered shelter in a gym and thats it. So much for the years for donations to their organization.
Same goes for FEMA, submitted required forms and spoke with them and was told would have to wait to I can meet with a FEMA reprensative in New Orleans that there were thousands of FEMA reps there. They gave me the same response as the Am Red Cross you will have to what until you get back in the New Orleans area.
If this would have happened in Washington DC, New York, Nantucket Virginia,eastern sea board, west coast or up north the support would have been there immediately but southeast Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama are in the south so take your time and follow all the regulations to the ”t” and create a few of your own to delay assistance.

They are not accepting calls and now I cannot find these two women who have served their church over 75 years. They were last known to be at the Methodist Hospital and because of their age and small size I believe they may be in danger of dehydration at this time.

I can be reached at the following numbers. 713-324-3446, 281-797-6914 or 13, 281-369-2551, 832-816-7220. Email contact: ann.porche@coair.com, apor!

Subject: My Hurricane Story — Save methodist hospital-Urgent
Story: Subject: My parents are in New Orleans and can’t get out, we need your help
Good morning everyone.
I just received a phone call from my sister, it is 1:20ish in the morning and she has just informed me that FEMA is not helping them at all.
They are out of water, food, and diesel fuel for the generator. If we don’t get media attention I am afraid that something horrible will happen to my parents and everyone at the hospital.
There are 700 people in the 3rd floor lobby, about 50 or staff, and around 50-60 patients (a few have been evacuated but the rest of died). They did have helicopters evacuating patients, but now they are refusing. (by the way the helicopters were being paid for by the hospital parent company UHC).

This is know joke, if we don’t get help to my parents, the hospital and everyone in the hospital may die. I don’t want to be dramatic but the reality is they are on their own.

What do we need.
1. National Media Attention
2. Food
3. Water
4. Diesel fuel
5. transportation of some sort( the problem here is that FEMA is taking over all transportation when they see it).

If you can get or do ANYTHING, please call or email me or Simmy @ the following numbers:
205-243-7379 my cell
205-567-7445 simmy’s cell
pbarrocas@hp-hotels.com
sbarrocas@jeffcohousing.com
phyb@msn.com
The name of the hospital is Methodist Hospital it is in New Orleans east. FEMA and everyone else you speak with may tell you that they have been evacuated, this is not True. My sister just spoke with people at the hospital and the conditions are getting worse rapidly.

Thanks in advance,
Phillip

Story: My 81 year old uncle is still in his house in the French Quarter. He lives alone above his antique shop on Conti. His building is not submerged, but he is afraid to go out into the street because of the lawlessness. He is frail and doesn’t walk very well. I have left his information with every emergency agency I can contact (FEMA, Highway Patrol, Coast Guard, LA Dept of Homeland Security, NO Search and Rescue) but no one has been to get him. His telephone works (amazingly), so I call him every few hours to touch base. I am afraid he is going to run out of drinking water.

Subject: My Hurricane Story — Methodist Hospital

Story: I’m sure you and other staff at the paper are getting lots of e-mails from people looking for hurricane help. I’m not sure if you can help with my situation, but my dad is stranded with about 400 other people at Methodist Hospital in New Orleans East. The company that runs the hospital has been trying to get supplies in, but FEMA has apparently turned them away, taken the supplies to be used elsewhere. The evacuation is running slowly and it is taking days to get all 700 people out of the hospital. The situation is very dangerous because of the alligators and snakes in the water and the lack of supplies and the sheer chaos that has taken over the city. My family has tried contacting every one we can think of to try to get some help in, but nothing seems to be working so I’m contacting you and the news stations for help in getting coverage there to shed light on the situation. I have read no coverage of Methodist and this situation is only worsening. Maybe you can help.

Subject: My Hurricane Story — missing niece and students @ the Georgian Apts

Story: Dear Sir or Madam:

My niece along with at least 15 others are trapped in their apartment building in New Orleans. They are mostly students at Loyola, Tulane, etc, who were not evacuated. There is at least one elderly couple in the building who may last much longer; my niece reported that they’ve stopped eating and they are very concerned. We have not heard from our niece since the hurricane, except as they were able to scavange for food and water, they found a working cellphone, and that is how we know that for now, they are alive. They don’t think that anyone knows that they are there. They cannot go out to get help, because there has been several incidents of shooting/looting in the area. My niece is not from the area, and has only been there for the last two weeks; she just started law school at Loyola. She reported to us that the building looks vacant, and they are afraid to hang signs out because of the looting.

We realize that many many people are in unspeakeably horrible situations, but the problem here is that NO ONE knows that they are there – so there doesn’t seem to be a chance for rescue.

If there is ANYTHING that could be done so that the authorities at least know about them
Our nieces’s name: Dominique COKLEY

Story: Hi, I know there are countless pleas and so many unfathomable stories of catastrophy and need, that another feels like a drop in the ocean. Nonetheless, I don’t know what else to do but try. My mother lives in the lower Garden District (St. Andrew and Prytania). She is desperate to get out. We can get her picked up in Baton Rouge and even now have a place for her to be dropped off. However, she has no car, she is older (in fact her birthday is Sunday) and has no way to get to Baton Rouge. Please, please, if anyone here knows anyone in the Garden District or Uptown areas that is leaving, I am BEGGING for some help to get her out. I don’t have much in terms of ways to compensate anyone willing and able, but I promise to give all I have – nothing is more valuable to me than her. I realize it’s a long shot, but don’t know what else to do but post this as many places as possible and hope. Thank you and I hope your loved ones are well. Felicia

I do not normally write letters like this but these are not ordinary times. I am praying that the six degrees of separation might be able my friend my
friend Kim Keene, who is in charge of the oldest hospital in New Orleans- Trouro Infirmary. Yesterday they had 4 hours of generator time left, were stranded on the 2nd floor an\
d above, and had 1200 people (patients and staff). Looters were banging at
the door and they only had a handful of security guards. She is trying to find a way to get the people
out as they had no water, limited supplies and with no electricity there is no life support and people will
start dying. Trouro, an independent Jewish hospital in the garden
district, has been completely ignored- it has not been put on the emergency evacuation plan and no news stations or papers have covered what is happening
there.

She called desperate to get someone to notice them. I am appealing to you if you know anyone who might be able to get them noticed (media or overnmental) and taken care of, pl\
ease forward this information.

Touro Infirmary Needs Help!
Name: Pug LaHart
Home: 323-876-6851
Email: cyberhagpro@yahoo.com
Subject: My Hurricane Story — Touro Infirmary Needs Help!
Story: Posted 9/1/05
FROM: Kim Keene, who is in charge of the oldest hospital in New Orleans- Trouro Infirmary.

Yesterday they had 4 hours of generator time left, were stranded on the 2nd floor and above, and had 1200 people (patients and staff). Looters were banging at the door and they only had a handful of security guards. She is trying to find a way to get the people out as they had no water, limited supplies and with no electricity there is no life support and people will start dying.

Trouro, an independent Jewish hospital in the garden district, has been completely ignored – it has not been put on the emergency evacuation plan and no news stations or papers have covered what is happening there.

She called desperate to get someone to notice them.

I am appealing to you if you know anyone who might be able to get them noticed (media or governmental) and taken care of, please forward this information.

Subject: My Hurricane Story — Nurses and Doctors at East Jefferson

Story: My mom has been stuck inside East Jefferson General Hospital since Saturday night. She recently called to tell us that the situation outside is too unsafe for them to leave. They are stuck there for at least another week. No one seems to be helping those still working in the hospitals, there needs to be some relief for those nurses and doctors who have been trapped inside since Saturday with no electricity, no phones, and little relief in sight. Please help us get our mom back. We miss her so much, and want her and the others to get out of the city.

Story: Two important pieces of information to correct my earlier posting. First, I have spoken to a Dr. Sigilito at Charity Hospital who said Richard Vinroot was at Touro Hospital, not Charity Hospital. I know nothing else about Charity Hospital, I’m sorry. The second thing is that Richard and the other docs at Touro Hospital have gotten out. They are apparently on a van headed for dry ground.

I know nothing more, I’m sorry. Of course I am relieved for my coworker and her family but I am still praying for the rest of you so desperate for information.

Rescue Needed on Versailles Blvd

Subject: My Hurricane Story — Rescue Needed on Versailles Blvd
Story: My parents, John and Betty Kron (ages 89 and 79) are in their home in uptown New Orleans.
47 Versailles Blvd
New Orleans, LA 70125
504-866-6862
phone service to them was lost Tues 8/30 at 11pm CT – last we heard from them.
At that time, the water was up about 4 feet, but rising. IT is a two story red brick house with a porch outside on the 2nd story (for rescue)
My dad broke a rib last week; mom has residual effect from a mild stroke about 5 years ago, so they are not in tip-top condition. Mom does drive; Daddy can walk etc. albeit slowly
We reached the Red Cross phone, the Governor’s office phone (via Mary landrieu’s office and directly) and also the ”search and rescue” numbers.
If you know of anything more I can do, please let me know. We’re all praying for a safe recovery. I have friends in BR, Lafayette, Houston etc waiting to help them, if we can get them out of town. Then me or one of my sisters would come bring them home with us to CO, FL or DE.

Name: Kristen Coleman
Home: 708-373-6471
Email: kristen_Coleman@canb.uscourts.gov
Subject: My Hurricane Story — A report of a Rescue at Xavier!

Story: It is a crying shame that many parents have not heard from their children, they saw off to attend the school about two weeks ago. If the children are safe somebody needs to do a media coverage or should send a report saying that they are. It should be from a student that was there if they are safe, because there needs to be facts and not hearsay. If they are there they are not safe, they should be evacuated. If these students are left to die there will be plenty of angy parents and alumnus, LIKE MYSELF VERY UPSET! THEY SHOULD NOT BE THERE ANYWAY, THEY SHOULD HAVE EVACUATED THEM SOMEWHERE ELSE. I HAVE NOT HEARD A WORD FROM ANY XAVIER OFFICIALS SPEAKING OF THE CONDITIONS THERE AT THE SCHOOL, AND IF NORMAN C. FRANCIS, THE PRESIDENT OF THE SCHOOL IS SAFE HE SHOULD BE MAKING AN EFFORT TO GET THE INFO OUT. HE SHOULD HAVE TAKEN THE STUDENTS SOMEWHERE THAT FRIDAY ANYWAY, NOBODY SHOULD HAVE BEEN LEFT THERE. THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!

1300 Still Trapped at University Hospital
Name: Jason Newton
Phone: 281-650-4909

1300 Still Trapped at University Hospital
Latest text message from inside the hospital: 6:40PM 8/31. ”No [news or contact]. Water dropping. Gunshots and roit. Not safe.”
Through text messages and intermittent cell phone calls I have learned that 1300 patients and staff remain trapped mere blocks from the SuperDome at the University Hospital on Gravier Street. My girlfriend of 15 years is a 3rd OB/GYN resident there. She volunteered to staff the ward and has been there since 6am Saturday.
No power, sewage, food or water for 48+ hours
All exits are flooded, save 1 that leads to more water
No supplies have been delivered
11 doctors shared 2 flashlights last night
Many dead are reported in the hospital
The generator in the basement flooded
No helipad exists
No word from the outside world on a rescue or a plan
The stench is said to be unbearable
The collective mood and health standards are going downhill quickly.
I simply want to call attention to the fact that there is a much bigger catastrophe happening than we are being told – there are much more emergent matters away from the bussing of the SuperDome to Houston – thousands are in dire straights at this moment in area hospitals without relief. Many lives are still in danger.
Please help get the word out that there are significant group of souls that need immediate rescue – or at the least some food and water and some communication.

A man-made disaster
Name: ND Cattaneo
Home: 011-39-347-0766307
Email: askhc@tin.it
Subject: My Hurricane Story — man-made disaster
Story: Watching Michael Chertoff try to defend the totally inadequate response to the New Orleans devastation is like watching another Bush adminstration fiasco: Colin Powell telling the UN that the US had absolute proof of WMD in Iraq. The Bush administration seems to follow the practice: Tell a lie long and loudly enough and eventually it will be believed. What a pathetic excuse Chertoff offered of not being able to fly helicopters or position troops in a hurricane. How offensive offering the death of a FEMA truck driver as proof of their commitment to do their jobs. The hurricane has been gone for days, the West Bank of the city is dry…why not move people to the river banks and ferry them across to dry land? How gullible to they believe the American public to be? And what about advance preparation…when a CNN anchor referred to the destruction of New Orleans as a natural disaster, she inadvertently erred: It’s a man-made disaster: wrought by the incompetence of the Army Corp of Engineers and their many failed projects in the region, including the levee systems (nothing but a patch meant to appease a general public unqualified to understand the weaknesses (and downright dangers) of the Corp’s work); by the apathy of the federal and state governments to have a ”worst-case-scenario” plan in place; by the mayor of New Orleans and the governors of Louisiana and Mississippi, who all appear on TV to be completely dumbfounded and unable to lead, organize or set the bureaucratic wheels in motion to get the assistance and control necessary to relieve disaster-struck areas. The bureaucrats are busy defending themselves while lawlessness, desperation and misery increase by the minute and people are literally dying in the streets for lack of help. People of Louisiana, Mississippi, and the USA….don’t drown in apathy as New Orleans has drowned in bureaucratic incompetence…DEMAND MORE. DEMAND that NEW ORLEANS is PROPERLY ASSISTED NOW and REBUILT LATER with truly adequate and effective protection and plan!
s for potential future disasters.

I have as much sympathy as anyone for what you are going through. I have family and friends both in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. But What I am seeing on the news with the looting, shooting at the police, shooting at the people trying to help, really makes me sick. What part of ”You need to get out of town” did these people not understand? Both the Gov. and mayor told the people that it was going to be a bad storm and they needed to leave. As I tell my children when they talk back to me, ”What part of NO do you not understand, and at 10 and 11 they know where the line is drawn. These people that decided to stay home put not just their lives, but the national guard and the coast guard who then had to go out and try to save them at what cost to the tax payer. Then when they do get picked up they complain about the ”service” at the dome as if it a hotel. This is a deaster area, they don’t get room service. Then when I see the people looting for TVs and racks of clothing I wonder, what are they doing, are they planning a yard sale? I saw a lady yesterday yelling at a newman, ”Its hot here in the projects, and I needs me some water and some food”….I really did expect her to complain about her power being off and her welfare check being late….Give me a break, It sad and its a mess and I will help the in the areas where I can see people trying to help themselves. But I will not help gang members be relocated to another city….If the shoot at a police officer they should be shoot, If they shoot at a gardsman the same…..There should be NO TOLERANCE for this trpe of behavior. I’d sound like a racist if I said this is WHY they needed a master….

People trapped at church on Willowbrook Drive

Subject: My Hurricane Story — trapped people..help

Story: Mary Queen of VN Church 5069 Willowbrook Drive, New Orleans, LA 70129

There are still approximately over 300 Vietnamese people stranded in
sewage water up to the necks in many areas gathered at the Church.
We\’ve contacted USCG, Red Cross, news media but no help has come out to
their way yet. As you all know, Versailles is so far on the eastern edge
of New Orleans that by the time any helicopters come that way, they\’re
already filled with people and have to turn back towards the Superdome
to drop people off. (I think this is the case but not sure)

We have been in touch with some of the people there thru one phone (a
land line in a residential home near the small church) for the past two
days but no help still. The people have been taking turns to keep
telephone watch to hear news. We managed to patch thru NBC via 3-way
calling around 3pm today but still no help.

The water is still rising in that area. The levees east (Lake
Pontchartrain) and south (Chalmette)of Versailles are the ones that have
been breached. Many of the people are growing weak and sick from lack of
food and water plus the heat. Some of them feel like they probably
won\’t make it for the next day. Please people!!! do what you can to get
these people to save land.

However, the buses that came to that pick-up point did not gather all the people. There may approximately be 100+ people at this spot. Since the people stranded at the Superdome has caused the rescue efforts there to come to a halt, I would like to see people at this point picked up and other areas where they are not fighting the rescuers.

University Hospital in desparate need of rescue

Name: JUSTIN DEES

Home: 727-501-3630

Email: JLD05@FSU.EDU

Subject: My Hurricane Story — UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL STILL IN DESPERATE NEED OF INITIAL HELP

Clearly rescuers’ safety is the foremost and priority concern; however i write to follow up on my initial posting from yesterday. University hospital (on Perdido?), not to be confused with Tulane University hospital or Charity Hospital is still in need of an initial rescue effort.

University hospital has apparently slipped through the system and has yet to receive assistance as rescue efforts have been directed elsewhere. The hospital is absolutely non-functional and patients are dying at an alarming rate. My father in law (Dr. Oscar Ballester a treating physician at this hospital who is in need of food, water, and insulin) is stable, but we are unaware how long this will hold, possibly less than 48 hours.

Concentrated rescue efforts can produce results and directly save lives at this facility. Again, these efforts are clearly hampered by the lawlessness in the city. However, there has to be some attempt directed at this facility, as there has been none.

Any report to the contrary of my posting is simply mis-communication and false. Again, we are talking about university hospital and not the others.

Attempts to organize private rescue efforts, chartered helicopters, are hampered by FAA clearance issues and have thus far proven unsuccessful.

If anyone has words of advice, recommendations, comments, or anything at all, please e-mail me at jld05@fsu.edu.

Human resolve and spirit will ultimately prevail regardless of the this terrible time and the fate of those lost. This is unconditional–regardless of the contrary acts of those engaging in the horrible behavior that we all are witnessing.

There are at least 400 students trapped in the dormitory with no food or water. From my understanding the police officials did not check to see if there were people still on campus. This article is to inform anyone reading this that these people need help urgently. The girls are on the 5th floor and the boys on the 6th. There pliot is dire and should be attended to as soon as possible. Since you cant evacuate the Superdome then why not turn your efforts toward evacuating students at Xavier University. There needs to be some communication with the personal and students at Xavier also they need to inform the families of all the (missing) students on their wellbeing and what plans they have to get these people out of New Orleans and were they can be picked up, bused, flowen out from.

Story: The last contact with my mother and father was 8-31-05 at 9am Central time. My mom and dad were some of the people who thought they could ride out the storm, although i tried to convence my mother to leave. She decided to stay because my father is sick. I truly hope and pray that my loving mother made it to safety, she also is sick. I just wish that i could help them, but I am helpless. And i want the whole country to know that the looting is only a fraction of the people .There is a lot of people that truly need and want help. The one thing that i cant understand is my oldest son Michael Rogers is presently in Iraq And my youngest Ronald Gladstone is currently in the navy bootcamp. And they suspend rescue because someone fired at helicopter, this is really confusing. When they fire at my son and many others in Iraq do they suspend operations, I dont think so! So why are they suspending rescuing my dear mother and father and the countless other mothers and fathers, sons and daughters that are stranded in New Orleans Louisiana. Please!Please! someone give the order to save those beautiful people.

7109. STRANDED? Need RESCUE?
by familiafox, 9/1/05 1:51 ET
If looking for help because you think you may have a family member stranded in the flood waters this should help. It did help me. I got someone right away using the 225-925-7412 number.
Here are a bunch of numbers you can call to report people you believe are stranded and need to be rescued:
225-925-6626 (Office of Emergency Preparedness)
Additional Telephone: (People have gotten through on these numbers), 225-925-7708, 225-925-7709, 225-925-3511, 225-925-7412, 225-922-1278, 225-925-7428, 504-658-8700, 225-389-2000, 1 800-438-4636, 1 800-help now, 225-293-1889, 225-295-0104, and 318-443-2565

It is difficult to get through; be persistent.

There is also one “LAST RESORT EMERGENCY RESCUE SITUATION NUMBER” for use “if someone is ON A ROOF, in JEOPARDY and in need of IMMEDIATE RESCUE or MEDICAL TREATMENT.” It is 225-342-7015.

Please be ready to provide the following: exact address, cross street, people’s names, number of people, medical/physical condition of people, environmental condition of their location (flood waters etc.)

Be calm, patient and polite, remember the person answering that telephone call is probably stressed, over-worked and tired too.

Desparate security situation in Riverbend
9:30 am

Name: Scott Harney

Phone: 504-338-7588

e-mail: scotth@scottharney.com

DESPERATE SECURITY SITUATION IN RIVERBEND
Spoke to my uncle this morning (Thurs) in Riverbend near Carrolton and St Charles. He and several (elderly) residents are holed up there and the security situation is getting desperate. Heat is extreme and there are roving gangs of looters with guns. The looters have also commandeered a backhoe and are ramming homes. My uncle and the others have no info about the evacuation. While Leake Avenue and River Road are dry, they are afraid to leave as they fear they will be shot, carjacked etc. This is a desperate plea for help as this is so far from downtown. We are trying to call everyone we can but of course the phone doesn’t work. If someone official sees this, please send help.

Residents trapped at UNO
9:27 am

Name: Freddie Stewart

Phone: 205.534.9105

e-mail: fstewart9@msn.com

Please notify the Coast Guard to search the buildings located on the campus of
the University of New Orleans. Mr. Patrick Jolly is trapped in a building with
other people and is surrounded by water. We lost contact with Mr. Jolly exactly
two days ago. He is diabetic and has a group of people with him. His last
conversation with his daughter was that he is surrounded by water due to the
levee break and that a young girl was having an asthma attack. He did not
specify which building he is in but we speculate that it is the federal building
that has multiple floors.

If possible, please notify the authorities to search each building on the campus
for Mr. Jolly.

If additional information is needed, Mr. Jolly’s family can be contacted at
the following information:

Son-In Law: Freddie Stewart (Alabama) 205.534.9105
email: fstewart9@msn.com

Daughter: Dana Edwards (Alabama) 251.634.0846

Mr. Jolly’s wife is with his daughter and we are all hoping to contact him
ASAP.

Please contact me if any additional information is needed.

Thanks,
Freddie Stewart

Story:
I got a call from my sis-in-law, Vicki, just now. Her Nanny has been at their house in New Orleans the last couple of days. Due to running out of food, water and general flooding (water is now 10 feet deep at by brother’s house), she moved to a neighbors house. There are 3-4 adults with her, one with severe asthma and no medications. They tried to get out by boat yesterday, but then got shot at by looters. Vicki is calling around to see if anyone has any resources to help, and she was hoping someone might have a contact or an idea. If you would kindly forward this to anyone you know that is in or was in the National Guard, military, etc..

They are on the deck of a house waving a red flag between South Claiborne and Willow at:
