this is horrible. now they've had to call off rescue missions because of the conditions. it seems that some people are attacking people in boats. and shit's gettin' nasty at the superdome, too:
Huge crowds, hoping to finally escape the stifling confines of the stadium, jammed the main concourse outside the dome, spilling out over the ramp to the Hyatt hotel next door -- a seething sea of tense, unhappy, people packed shoulder-to-shoulder up to the barricades where heavily armed National Guardsmen stood.
Fights broke out. A fire erupted in a trash chute inside the dome, but a National Guard commander said it did not affect the evacuation.
sounds like a nightmare. here are some places to send your cash..
