Katrina damage reports

Now that reports are finally streaming in, it is time to document the damage. This report will be updated as I receive new information so please keep checking back. In Harrison County, Mississippi alone, the governor is reporting up to 80 deaths. By my count, we are dealing with a total of 94 deaths reported (including the three from the evacuation and eleven from Florida). I cannot solely scour the internet looking for video and photos but am looking to you for help. Please send any help and tips to severestorm@gmail.com.

Boil orders are in effect for Orleans and Jefferson parishes, except for Algiers and the Central Business District.

The Times-Picayune is running a blog keeping track of updates in the New Orleans area.

Here is one link sent to me from WKRG in Mobile. They are streaming video.

This is a photo found on The Drudge Report that I believe is looking down Tulane Ave from in front of the Ritz towards the Hyatt in the distance. This is at the border between the French Quarter and Treme, I believe near North Rampart.


Video from the AP on the damage in New Orleans

Slideshow from Yahoo compiling AP, Reuters, and other photos

The NY Times is running an comprehensive article reporting at least 55 dead.
The Times also has a good slide show of the aftermath.

WWL-TV is also mainting a good photo gallery and slide show of yesterday, plus one of today's flooding. They also have many video fly-overs of the city.

WAFB is running a video slide show of aerial photos of the flooding.

The Sun Herald has more photo galleries than I feel like listing.

Yahoo! can be used to generate a photo list for Katrina.

Thanks to Liz Masoner and Sarah Mitchell for their help with this report.
