After the Hurricane

Anyone reading this a victim of Katrina? We were, most of our friends lost everything.
Where we live, we are pretty buffetted from the day to day wreckage, but I see it all several times a week. Just wondering how others are coping. We were very blesssed with minimal damage, but the aftermath is going to last a long time. Just wanting to touch base with other "survivors"

God bless all of you. I've worked disasters all over the world and this is the worst I've seen.

lost all my stuff and was forced to sleep outside for six days because everyone knows that shelters suck ass.

We're survivors, trying to get back to a somewhat "normal space. Most of the people we played with have relocated as a result of the storm, and we are now rebuilding our network of swinging friends. We missed total destruction by one city block, and consider ourselves truly blessed for that. Now we are ready to resume our lives...we need to expand our base of friends and playmates!

We are survivors in Ocean Springs. Our neighborhood was hit hard, bur we missed total destruction by one city block, and for that we feel truly blessed. We are now trying to get our lives back to "normal"...most of our friends have relocated as a result of the storm, so we are trying to expand our network of friends and playmates. Yes, things have changed... but with life comes hope!

I made through with just 3 feet of water in my house but most of my friends loat everything. I have been here all my life and been through a lot of hurricanes but never one like this. And it looks like we are the ones that are beeing overlooked all the attention is on New Orleans but they were hit really bad too. Hope everyone is doing better.

I had some damage, but nothing major. Just enough water to ruin the carpets and some furniture. I've only been here about three years and lived thru a lot of hurricanes in Tampa. Hope to hear more from you wife 100.

I was pummeled up here in hattiesburg. Never seen anything like that this far north, but I did manage to evacuate.
