Where is all the home video coverage? lots of people have camcorders!!
I saw alot of home video footage when the water was flooding in at first in NO. i guess after then noone could recharge their cam corders or batteries
had been damaged or washed away.

Very true. but there was a highway leading out of a flooded area and the marines/national guard are blocking it. i guess this is a good way to stop
'tourist looters' but you can still let reporters and necessary personnel in... such as the canadians
and ofcourse there is air transport that
we have already seen
there was a decent amount of coverage on tonight for anyone in britain who could see tonight with trevor macdonald. it showed that some stores are
opening and selling non-perishable goods. the point they were making however (and this is on a news program) was that the releif aid from the american
gov sucks at the moment. they also pointed out the severe lack of safe water, only a small ammount available from these stores.
things should get a bit better when the airlines bring supplies in
