Rescuing the living is top priority says Blanco
The chairman of the Jefferson Parish Council, Tom Capella, said that most of the west bank of his parish is high and dry but much of the east bank has been flooded. There were reports of some east bank pumps beginning to work, he said.
"We are going to be without power, water, sewers and drainage for an extended period of time. Many of the homes on the west bank were high and dry and most damage was on the east bank of Jefferson Parish," Capella said as part of a press conference at the state's emergency operations center here.
I know it's bad now but it could have been even worse if Katrina had stayed a 5 and moved west of NO.
Windows have blown out in the West Jefferson Medical Center office building. Because of that, patients in the West Jefferson Medical Center are being evacuated from their rooms into hallways, according to Jennifer Steel, hospital spokeswoman. There were no injuries as a result of the broken windows

I hope no one is surprised by the devastation of Katrina, it was expected and actually NO got less that what was initially forcasted, I know it's bad now but it could have been even worse if Katrina had stayed a 5 and moved west of NO.
I've been expecting devastation like Hurricane Andrew did to Miami but on a scale 2-3 time larger and greater. I just wished more people in the "cone of error" had evacuated instead of riding out this storm.
it's a sad sad thing, but it was expected
