is anybody there

just wondering if anybody has heard anything about their house around metairie or kenner. I can't get anybody on the phone so the only way to get people is through the net. I heard that it doesn't look good.

Re: is anybody there

I've heard that most homes have water in them, but the only areas i've heard about are lakeview, mid-city, and slidell. I'm not sure if you heard about the levee breech, but that seems to be the dominant story. I've spent a lot of time in New orleans but am not familiar with it enough to know how the breech would affect metairie and kenner.

The mayor speaking about affected areas. He said Metairie was under 5' of water.

This is the latest on that area.

Jeff Parish President. Residents will probably be allowed back in town in a week, with identification only, but only to get essentials and clothing. You will then be asked to leave and not come back for one month.

FEMA numbers to begin assistance process 1-800-621-FEMA or http://www.fema.gov.

Homeland security chief optimistic that 3,000 pound sandbags can close break in levee at 17th Street canal.

Jefferson Parish and Plaquemines Parish under Martial Law. No one being allowed into New Orleans.

Levee breaches are causing rising water in New Orleans.
