The floodwaters are still rising, people are dead, others are hurt, homeless, out of a job. Be thankful for what you have and donate to the Red Cross, just click on their logo here. Hurricane Katrina is really going to tax the resources of the country in that area.
I’ve covered floods on Oahu once and the day after a flood/disaster people talk freely, are happy to be alive and relate stories about the devestation. It isn’t until a day or more later that it really sinks in as to what they’ve lost and need to rebuild. So don’t let the TV interviews fool you when you hear someone calmly talking about how their house got wiped off the planet, it’s going to hit them later and hit them hard.
