Monday Katrina photos

9th Ward: Large-screen TV in an abandoned boat. Was the owner trying to save his own TV, or was the TV being stolen by a looter? I suspect the latter.

9th Ward, above St. Claude Avenue: More of the tens, or hundreds, of thousands of flooded vehicles in the graveyard of autos.

Gentilly: Look at the water height on the van.

Gentilly, Music and Prentiss Streets: Across New Orleans, owners hoped that elevating their cars a few extra inches on the neutral grounds would save their vehicles from flooding.

Gentilly, Prentiss Street: "Enter to worship, depart to serve."

Canal Street: American Red Cross, New Orleans chapter.

American Red Cross: Baby Anne.

American Red Cross: Help can't wait.

The pictures you post tell the story like no one else does. Keep them coming when you can.

Welcome back! Some parts of the city are doing pretty well, with much of the garbage removed, and services restored. Other parts look much the same as they did weeks ago.

Send me an email offline if you need any help with anything.

Well, if you like, you can find me at the WTUL tent/booth (I don't know what they have there). Ask for Brian.
