The American Red Cross is able to take donations online via credit card. So if you have a few bucks you can spare, please consider donating. The people hit by the hurricane are really going to need help.
Things are getting really bad, especially in New Orleans. There are some very horrific stories we won’t hear about for weeks because things are so chaotic, communications poor, and it’s very difficult to get into the neighborhoods now under water.
The water is expected to keep rising for several days. Literally, New Orleans will be under water, it’s only a matter of time. You can’t even imagine the things floating in that water. Disease is going to become a very real problem in the weeks to come. I’m not even thinking about what it will take to rebuild the area, I’m thinking about the immediate issues. Clean clothes, food, and water, and shelter are going to become very very difficult to find.
Any support you can give would make a world of difference. And the sooner the better. I don’t think the reality of just how bad things are and are going to be have sunk in to the public.
