Some Specifics

Okay - some specific requests. Please keep in mind these observations are all from the street. People are getting pretty jumpy there now, and it is probably unwise to approach a stranger's house.

Re: Tout Suite - the building, at least, is fine. Still boarded, so no looting I think. They haven't seen Jill.

  • 329 Eliza - good

  • 501 Pelican - good

  • 420 Pacific - house is in good shape, although the neighbor's tree has fallen into your front yard (missed the house, though!)

  • 538 Pacific - good

  • Olivier - house in good shape, but the garage / apt. in the back seems to have some damage.

  • Belleville Street - Mr. Gardner is there and is "doing fine". Said to pass along that the houses across the street (338 and 340) are good, also.... and the car is fine (I guess somebody knows what that means).

I'm trying to compile and group those that are still in my inbox, but it might be a bit slow getting some of these. Hang in there.... really, it's a miraculous situation - be hopeful!

I've seen a few postings from people who also are in contact with the Point. If you know anyone who is still in Algiers, and might be willing to help, can you ask them to get in touch with me? Thanks!

    Could you check on 333 Pelican. Purple house next to house of the rising sun. I know you were across the street and it looked "real good". I can't tell you what you are doing for our community is wonderful.

    I was wondering if you had any news on the Aurora area of Algiers.

    Can you check on 316 Verret. Purple house across from the park. We are worried that a neighbor's tree in the back may have fallen on the house. Any information on the condition of the house would be appreciated. Also, has there been any looting on the Point. Thanks for all you are doing.

  • At 10:22 PM, Blogger Karl said;

    Could you please be so kind to check on my house on 539 Elmira (green house). I'm especially concerned about the large tree in my backyard...

    If you have a chance, I know my neighbors on each side of my house would really appreciate a status on their house. Both of them have few months old infants !!

    With sincere gratitude,

    If your people are down Belleville again can they tell me what kind of shape 527 is in? This is where my brother lives (he evacuated).

    Your site is one of the best things going on the 'net since this disaster struck. Thank you for doing this, I think you are providing huge relief for many worried people.

    If you have the opportunity can you check on this home? 233 Delaronde Street.

    Many, many thanks.

    Could you check on 338 Bermuda (old corner grocery at Bermuda and Pelican that was boarded up before the storm)?

    We all owe you a debt of gratitude.

    My grandmother (Joyce Rice) says that everyone in the Point condos is ok. It appears that the walls that were blown out were due to the people who evacuated not nailing their shutters down. As far as I know, most have left the building and left the city safely.
