The first glimmers of hope
- NOLA.com reports 17th St. Levee Closed. There have been false statements of progress from Federal officials in the past, and I will try to get additional confirmation that this is true.
- Mayor Nagin said Sunday that pumping the water out of the city would likely be a matter of days, not months.
- An email from a gentleman indicates that the Vietnamese-Americans stranted in the Versailles subdivision (see earlier post) are rescued, but I have no news sources.
This it not a good note below. And I have virtually no information on Plaquemines Parish, except one eyewitness flyover saying east Plaquemines was "gone".
- St. Bernard Parish President Junior Rodriguez said his parish has been at "the end of the line". (Apologies for referncing him earlier as a police juror, a role he held for decades prior the parish).

So it is better to speak remembering we were never meant to survive." -- Audie LordeAny copyrighted material presented here is done so for the purposes of news reporting and comment consistent with USC 17 Chapter 1 Title 107.
