Some actual news!

I have a couple of things:

I just had a call from Algiers. They saw some National Guard unloading equipment at the Post Office on McArthur. So sounds like they're setting up there.

Another source tells me that the gated community between Thayer and Atlantic near Pelican (Riverside?) will be host to operations for the FBI and the military.

Finally - the National Guard is keeping the water treatment plant in Algiers safe.

More soon...

    Whoever you are, you are doing a wonderful job. Have tried emailing in bulk from library here in Houma but they will not go through so shall email through your site. Heard a lady on WDL radio this a.m. who lives at 423 Pelican Pauline's sister, Spanish Miss Sue's daughter). Barricaded in with gun & 2 pitbulls! She will check individual addresses on her scooter if you call her. She is keeping a list. Has gas & water, no power/email. Her name is Alexandria and phone no. is (504)362-3482. Said Tout de Suite, Templet's barbers, Circle K & Dry Dock Cafe have been looted but apparently there is a little army defending the "Pernt." If anyone in the Point reads this, she needs help emptying rotten contents of freezer. Wayne from Chicago is still there, looking after a dog that had 12 puppies (!) and is keeping an eye on her. He has no Heineken and a gun!!! You would have to know him to know how dangerous a site that could be!!!

    A lifeline -- I'm in Houston, a resident of 509 Elmira Ave., between Eliza and Evelina--satellite photos are very helpful. Let me know if anybody can check my house! Thanks for the patrolling!
