Much of Slidell is under water and likely sustained the worst damage from Hurricane Katrina, tate Sen. Tom Schedler, R-Mandeville, said Tuesday at 1 p.m.
Calling the devastation “total”, Schedler said, only slabs remain where dozens of houses were blown down and several feet of water remain in the Slidell Memorial Hospital on Gause Boulevard as well as throughout the old town area off U.S. 11.
Slidell is a suburban community of about 25,000 people northeast of New Orleans near where Interstates 10, 12 and 59 intersect in St. Tammany Parish.
Schedler was interviewed after being briefed at the state Office of Emergency Preparedness. He said he could not return to his district.
“Slidell is as bad as New Orleans east and some other areas in St. Bernard Parish,” Schedler said. “It’s a problem that will be with us for months and years.”

I know I am new, but this thread has brought a question to mind.....
We have seen how many members live so close to each other and have no idea that they do...........is there any way we can establish a thread/forum that would enable us to keep in touch with each other per country/area...based on a certain criteria, to offer aid to other members and next of kin if we are able???
Sorry if this sounds stupid
