Katrina photos - St. Bernard parish - pt. 2

This area of St. Bernard parish had 10 to 14 feet of water. Some people have returned to assess the damage and put things out of the house. Others still haven't done so - they are the ones I worry about returning.

That house doesn't belong in the street.

Notice the chair in the tree. I wonder if it floated there, or (seriously) if someone put it there to more comfortably stay in the tree until rescued.

Every single house, in block after block, looked like this on the inside.

This was touching - that people who return to examine their homes should leave messages behind for their neighbors - with whom they may never have been able to communicate since the hurricane. One of the biggest problems for people who evacuated is that they didn't know where their friends were, or how to contact them. For tens or hundreds of thousands of evacuees, online forums were, remarkably, the place they searched for information about their friends. When they couldn't be found, they left messages behind.

All kinds of things ended up in trees, on top of roofs and fences.

See how the fan blades drooped. The ceiling collapsed, and furniture floated around the inside of the house. This is a scene common to every house.

Remnant of an MRE package, a tiny tobasco bottle which are found in some MRE's, and other randomly strewn objects.

Care was taken in standing up these two stuffed animals.

Just inside the door.

I would just like to ask if the parishes outside of New Orleans have gotten any assistance from or Government? All the talk about New Orleans, but I hardly, if any, here about the outside cities/parishes that were affected by Katrina and Rita.

Some yes, some no. FEMA and the Red Cross has helped a lot of people, those deserving and those not. We weren't lucky at all to get help from FEMA, while others had no or little damage and got a lot.

Thanks for your concern.
