Hey everyone,

I've been watching the unbelievable footage coming across from New Orleans, Biloxi and Gulfport today. Simply stunning footage..

I'm from southeast Texas and about 4 hours from the devastation- in my hometown there are hundreds (if not thousands) of people holed up in churches, community centers, and our civic centers/amphitheaters with literally no place to go and the clothes on their backs as their only possessions. The scope and aftermath of this disaster is yet to be understood or felt by the rest of the nation. Hundreds of miles of shoreline and houses, casinos, and whole cities were literally wiped off the face of the earth. From what I've seen this is the United States' own "tsunami" with regard to the scope of the damage.

I would urge all of our members to please take a moment and donate to the hurricane disaster relief of their choice. The info below was taken from the FEMA page on how to help:

New Orleans

I am personally effected by this disaster as I have two older children who live in New Orleans. They both got out safely on Saturday night, one going to Florida and the other going north to Memphis. I fear they have both lost everything, but they are safe and that is what matters. I have thought about hauling water and supplies south from Pittsburgh but obviously there is no way to approach the city at this point in time. Anything any American can do for this devasted area should be done. It will be along time before the city of New Orleans is again dry and back to functioning as a normal American City, as well as the entire gulf coast area hit by this storm.
Lets all help when and where we can.

I am certain in the coming days that all of america will send forth needed supplies and their prayers.
