Thread Starter 
Do we know how our friends are doing that are hit by the storm? I know there are alot of people that have been evacuated to Boosier City LA-they have no more hotels open etc. This has hit hard-please if anyone has heard from our "family"-please let us know they are ok and let them know we are thinking of them and praying they are all ok. Thanks.

I'm sure it will take a while. Those who are at home don't have power, and those that left their home may not be back for a while. If they have anything to come back to. icon_sad.gif Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who were affected by this terrible storm!

I realize the power situation-thought maybe someone had cell phone #'s etc. Thanks for the update though. Just hope and pray everyone is ok-heard alot of horror stories on the news-of course with alot of the broadcasts some things are more hyped than others but the major concern is still there.

There is no phone or cell phone service period in South La. No electricity either. I still have not heard from Melissa or Roxanne. Plus my best friend is in Franklinton, La. & I can't get in touch with her. VERY WORRIED!! Her hubby is in Biloxi & he can't get in touch with her either. Hwy 90 from Biloxi to New Olreans is nothing but ocean sand & water. It has been broken in many places. I-20 is torn up! I can't get to my friend & she can't get to me, her hubby can't get to her either. Hubby said he still does not know if there is anything left of their house. I am so upset today it's been hard to do anything. My state along w/ Ms, Alabama is devistated. I feel for the people in Georgia too. Tornado's hit yesterday. Please pray for the people who have lost their homes. Also will you please pray for the people who do not know where their loved ones are. It's horrible!! Keep praying!!! THANK YOU ALL!!!!!

Turtle, I do feel for you-and I know if anyone finds out a way to get in touch with anyone they will let you know. I have a friend there where you are that works for Centurytel-she has family in Ala and Mississippi also but she has been able to contact them-was hoping someone had a way to get word out. You would think the media would find a way-there has to be a way-our prayers are with everyone and the hopes that this clears up soon so everyone can get home and be accounted for. Let us know what we can do to help.

I am so sorry for everyone invovled - just got done on cnn.com and I can't believe the devastation. So strange that life here seems to go on as normal, while so many are suffering. We will be praying for you all. Some of my tithing dollars are going to the relief effort.

I heard on the news this evening that southern LA may not have electricity for weeks, possibly months, that 80% of New Orleans is under water. I guess this is our version of a tsunami, huh?

I know in my church the collections for the next couple of weeks will more than likely go to hurrcane relief.

Hi everyone, I heard on CNN News that the thousands of people that are in the super dome have to be evcuate cause the water is coming into the dome and no where for the water to go and right now they trying to get the severly sick and people with health problems out by abulance to nearest hospital or shelter so that they can be treated and provide necessary medications. Mayor of New Orleans and other authorities are asking the people to immediately leave the super dome, but they have no where to go and not enough personnel officials to help relocate them, this is so sad and I know it has to be very frustrating for the people there and also the other hard hit area. I'm very concern about the many people who are trapped and can't seem to find their way out. I know that the National Guards are going to be helping out and I also heard on the news that people who are over seas are worried about their families and not been able to see or hear from them. Our troops are in the line of duty not only have a concern about their lives but also the lives of their loved ones during this horrible storm. My continous prayer that more people are found alive as well as animals and that food, water, medical supplies and other personal items gets to the people very soon. I wish that I was near by to help, but I now that my prayers will reach them where ever they are. I'll help in other ways, just need to make a couple of phone calls. They can't even receive mail. I saw how the highway have separated and slipped away into the ocean. All those houses and business that are covered with water, I pray that no one is inside the buildings. I saw where an apartment building had collapsed and thirty people were killed. icon_cry.gif A lot of people thought that by staying inside their home, they were safe, but when the water gave way so rapidly, there was not a lot of time to get out cause the wind was so high that people were so afraid to leave their homes. I hope that the government sends a lot of help to these people and move them on higher grounds or shelter where it will be safe for them.

When I first turned on the news yesterday morning, Slidell was right in the middle of the whole mess. I haven't stopped thinking about it since. I'm not a churchgoer, but this disaster has returned me to prayer. I have a friend on Guam who hasn't heard from his parents who live SW of NO, close to where Katrina made landfall. He has gotten in touch with us here in the states to help him find out anything about them, but we are as helpless as he is thousands of miles away.

I hope and pray that everyone comes out of this healthy, but it's going to take a long time to rebuild.

The Mayor of New Orleans was interviewed about an hour ago. The people in the SuperDome will be stuck there for at least another week. The level has broken & there will be another 12 ft or more of water dumped on New Orleans tonight. The people have to stay in the Superdome to be a little safer then fending for themselves.

Hey Nanni!
So your friend works at the CentryTel or works for CentryTel? It's a small, small world~ The CentryTel is a place where big singers & bands play. Also where our hockey team "The Mudbugs" call there home. I live 8 miles from it. I am hoping that they will open the doors & allow evacuatees stay there.

Thanks for all the prayers friends! I really feel helpless here! It's in my state & I can't get anywhere near down South. The Interstate is so torn up! It's like the state has been divided into. When I was in 8th grade (24 years ago) taking La. History the books then said that New Orleans would be part of the ocean by the year 2000. Well it's now 2005 & I'm starting to believe it! The ones predicting that were a few years off though. I'm only 6 hours from New Orleans & it feels soooo weird to be a firefighter & I can't help! icon_sad.gif

I know everyone from La. sure does appreciate all the prayers!!!!

I can't begin to tell you how bad the New Orleans situation is... we were on buses yesterday and bused over 200 people from the Baton Rouge area... these were all New Orleans residents who have no homes to go to .. LSU shelter centers can't hold anymore and we're transporting them to other facilities but these too are filling up faster than we can get them open .. we can see no end in sight at this time with the emergency shelters .. we keep opening more and more and we have no idea where or what we're going to do w/these people ... some have no home and no relatives to go to ... it's a horrible situation down here... you cry with the people in these shelters when you hear their stories... I just can't begin to tell you all how bad it really is .. please pray for all the shelter personnel also .. I don't know how long we're going to be able to work these long, long hours to help the people .. most of us are working in excess for 18-20 hour days, myself included .. I did get to come home last night, but none of us know when or if we will be home again each time we go off to the shelters.. at least we do have homes to go to .. these people have nothing but the clothes on their backs... it's a bad situation down here.. I can't stress that enough icon_sad.gif
