This is FAR worse than what the news has been saying all along. The news kept saying New orleans did NOT get the brunt of Hurricane Katrina. But now they are saying that the levy's broke and even the 20,000 evacuated people in the Superdome are trapped by flood waters. This is awful.

My prayers for everyone in New orleans and the Gulf/south area hit by Katrina, and anyone else who has family or friends down there.

Ya my mother still is trapped inside of the Hyatt right next door to the superdome. The rest of my family isnt accounted for yet. I still have Uncles and Aunts im worried about. I hope they are ok ... but atleast i found my mother and sisters. As soon as they can get out im going to fly down there to meet them and reunite. They will either head to Houston with the rest of the Refugees , or they will go to Jacksonville Florida where they have a 3 bedroom home that their friends own.

I've read on TV, newspapers and net about what kind of damage hurricane Katrina has caused and how bad the damage would be in the gulf area. I hear it would be the worst the US has ever suffered from natural disasters for recent some decades. I do hope necessary relief will be sent to all those who are suffering now and they'll recover as soon as possible. My prayers are for them and the gulf area/the South involved.

It's become the largest 'Lord of the Flies' location in the USA, thanks to the lowlifes in the area, as well as the slow action taken by the Federal govt.

Will now become the most famous Superfund site as well.

I guess people like Pat Robertson should have prayed harder before the storm hit. Maybe he could have forced it to take a different path as he requested a hurricane a while back (OY)

sad, sad, sad

I'm going to donate as much as I can afford. I wish I could help out personally but I will pray for all that have loved ones missing.

I donated much money for the Tsunami victims... But I don't give one cent for this.

I feel sorry for the people who are caught by the hurricane, but America wants to solve all the problems in the world by their own... so I let them solve their own problems as well.


I got to try al little more,

because I'm an asshole but I'm learning.

What a fantastic attitude The Mir@cle, I am sure humanity is so much better off because of it.

Now, say that a similar thing happens to your country - who do you suppose will be amongst the first to offer aid?

That may be the US.. But that don't change my point of view.

I'm not selfish at all, I donate lots of money to charity. But I can't stand the arrogant attitude of Bush... Let him solve this shit.

The American people have always generously helped others in need. It goes without saying that the victims of this disaster deserve all our help and solidarity. I really don't see what Bush has to do with that. It's a basic rule of humanity to help each other.

You can donate here

Let's not forget that our fellow Queenzoner Kayla (LiveAidQueen) is in Biloxi, Miss and we do not know if she is safe. In Biloxi, virtually all homes were destroyed and no aid has reached the survivers yet.

Mississippi was hit so hard it's unfathomable... It's insane. Unfortunately, some of the worst parts of the human race have come up and are taking advantage of the situation either by looting or gouging prices. Today, a man killed his own sister over a bag of ice. An absolute shame.
There is no need attempting to change The Miracle's opinion. His own bigoted view is his to keep and your energies are best spent elsewhere. For some the chip on their shoulder blocks a rational view of the world.
Hard to believe I was in new Orleans just a few months ago. The hostel where I meant so many interesting people is now gone forever.
Tomorrow, I will be in Mobile helping the red cross in any form possible. I may just be turned away, I don't know, but we are going to volunteer.
I hope Kayla got out in time. But even if she did, there is not a lot left to return to. My thoughts and prayers are with her and everyone else touched by Katrina. I have not heard from my friends down there either. ALl we can do is wait and hope. :-(

There are an estimated 20,000 stuck at the convention center in New Orleans. No officials are there to help them. They were given one food drop today of about 24 persons worth of food. There are children scared to death, elderly, and hard working people who have lost everything and they have been waiting almost 5 days.

We are failing them. Not enough is being done. It makes me sick.

I've just watched the newest one about it on TV...it's horrible...it reminds me of horror I felt when I saw the news about some earthquake disasters in my country, especially the heaviest one which happened over ten years ago and caused horrible damages. I'm worried about people involved in that hurricane...and I hope she, Kayla is okay. In case of heavy earthquake disasters of my country, I sent relief supplies as much as I could afford, which I thought people would need. Although there's not much that I can do, I'm hoping...

First of all THIS: [Bush... Let him solve this shit]::: Shouldnt be in this topic. Second of all, I am from the Gulf Coast with people in my family that still could be missing. That which you have said shows exactly what kinda piss poor attitute some certain people have here. You are talking about MY HOME , MY FRIENDS , MY WAY OF LIFE buddy. Ive been ripped in half and Im still crying because i cant find anyone else in my family. Sure I found my mother. THATS IT!!! I still have uncles aunts and cousins out there and I have no idea of there whereabouts. I have friends in both Biloxi and New Orleans and the surrounding areas. THIS IS ALL YOU CAN SAY!!!! Just because we have people over seas in a war and a president with his head not screwed on straight , does NOT mean you have to take it out on the rest of the people in this fucking country. I read this forum alot and have seen many certain people bicker and fight and argue over STUPID things. NOW ISNT THE TIME TO ACT LIKE YOUR 5!!!!!

I understand your reaction OgreBattleField1980... I feel sorry for the situation you're into right now. I do think it's horrible what happens there. And my thought are with the victims.

But still there's no hair on my head that thinks of donation money.
