Hurricane Katrina Memorial

More than a week after the killer storm Katrina pounded ashore along the U.S. Gulf Coast, our thoughts and support go out to the survivors, the evacuees, and the victims.*

To support the relief efforts, call: 800-HELP-NOW.

Even on this website, concern and commentary swirls about this storm. When this was posted, three pages of blog entries mentioned Hurricane Katrina. Here are some samples:

*The death toll ticks upward slowly and no one knows where it will end. The mayor of New Orleans believes at least 10,000 people from his city alone have died in the storm and during its aftermath. If so, Hurricane Katrina will become the worst disaster in U.S. history. The Galveston Hurricane of Sept. 8, 1900 (before storms were named) holds that dubious distinction for the moment; it claimed between 6,000 and 8,000 lives. (The storm was so destructive that no one ever determined a firm death count.) It may be months before the true toll in lives and dollars spread across Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama can be tallied.
