WHERE A FELLOW BLOGGER LIVES (LIVED?)
I posted earlier that fellow blogger, Dana, lives in Slidell, LA. In her last post, before Katrina hit, she said she and her family were going to wait it out, but if they were going to be without power for very long, they would go to Florida. Boy, I hope they hightailed it out of there in time! Here are some reports I've found specifically about Slidell.
Katrina pushed 15 feet of water into Slidell
Dexter Accardo, director of St. Tammany Parish, said Hurricane Katrina pushed 15 feet of water into Slidell, reaching the second level of the Hampton Inn in Slidell off of Interstate 10.
Senator: Slidell area likely hardest hit by Katrina
Much of Slidell is under water and likely sustained the worst damage from Hurricane Katrina, tate Sen. Tom Schedler, R-Mandeville, said Tuesday at 1 p.m. Calling the devastation “total”, Schedler said, only slabs remain where dozens of houses were blown down and several feet of water remain in the Slidell Memorial Hospital on Gause Boulevard as well as throughout the old town area off U.S. 11.
Dana, I hope you're able to read this, and I pray you and your family are okay!
