Rumor control - power, looting, and squatting

There are rumors floating everywhere, of course, and it's hard to confirm some of them, but these three subjects popped out at me.

  1. Power: I was told this morning that yes, some lights are on in Gretna (it can be seen in the night). Specific to AP: I was informed that two Entergy trucks have been seen since Katrina. Neither was carrying repair equipment, and no activity has been spotted yet. They may still be assessing.
  2. Looting: The looting on AP seems to be confined so far to businesses / commercial buildings. However, it is very hard to know for sure.
  3. Not sure what to make of the term "squatting". There are implications to it that bother me.
If you can confirm or deny rumors, I'll be glad to try to get them up. Please let me know the source, though.

    As for the lights in Gretna, maybe people are running their generators.

    "squatting" - living in a house that is not yours - I am concerned about people living in houses not there own but in better shape - but I guess this is better than looting to destruction or being set on fire...
