On an illustrator's forum, one of the participants posted a link to an aerial photo she found showing the flooding where her parent's house is located in New Orleans. Her parents evacuated in time, but she had to call FEMA because her dad believes there are people trapped in the windowless attic of his church. Their house is in the bottom right of this photo.
Here is the link:

Crews Pass Dead to Reach Storm Survivors

Reuters.

I posted these to another thread but I'll put them here also. Reuters is usually very good about posting a lot of photos. The San Francisco Chronicle has links to quite a few photos if you click on the box of photos where it says "more."

Oh, Alice. As I watched the picture download on my slow dial-up connection, it gave the sense of the camera scanning mile after mile of devestation. That brought home to me the scale of the disaster (We don't have TV so all my information has been printed, internet or radio.) Knowing intellectually what is happening is one thing--the emotional understanding from the visual information is quite another.

Alice thank you for that special link to that desperate panorama.

Could I look at the Illustrators forum as well?

Janie, I understand your point of view. I have a TV but I haven't turned it on since the debates before last year's Presidential election. I may not turn it on for another three years. However, there are TV monitors in the gym where I work out, including several in the women's locker room. Last night I saw CNN's coverage of Katrina, and it really was worth way more than 1000 words. I have heard about spectacular rescues by the military, but actually seeing this had tremendous impact. A man hanging from a rope or cable trailing from a Coast Guard helicopter plucked another man from a roof and the two of them were carried off way above the floodwaters. I think that if I had been the person being rescued I might have been too scared or too weak to hang on to the rescuer.

I just followed the links to a photo of a rescue by helicopter of someone on a rooftop. It was way, way more dramatic seen in motion, with the gusting wind and billowing sheets of rain over the cityscape turned seascape. BTW, the American Red Cross is calling for donations of blood and money. The city is devastated.

Yahoo news has incredible close-up videos of people, including one scared little girl, being rescued by workers suspended from helicopters. Stunning! Global village, indeed.
