Ok, this one definitely: ngs.woc.noaa.gov...

It's everywhere.


Yeah, it appears that way to me. And it appears to be crude, not just gas or hydraulic fluid from a random vehicle or boat here or there. It looks substantial to me.

Again, not to be too gruesome, but wouldn't bodies float toward neighboring beaches when the tide comes in.

Point being...if there were such mass casualties, wouldn't it be evident without visiting the west end?

I still don't see why they would restrict media coverage of this area.

The slicks you point out still seem nominal. And after pouring over the images, the damage looks nothing like the Bolivar images. At least there are still houses...

That is great news!!!

But 6o????

So this *is* to restrict images of people seeking help. That isn't a small number.

Where were they? Homes? Commercial buildings? In large or small groups?

This is like Katrina all over again. I guess if it dosen't affect someone directly we really don't get it. People just don't learn from others mistakes.
My heart goes out to the families affected by this storm.

Come on... please do not refer to us (texans) in this way. We are just like you and everone else. Perhaps we dissagree on a few things but we are all the same in the end...

And how exactly do you prevent innocent children from viewing wanton death and destruction in your quest for a free and open media.I suppose you allow yours(if you have any) to view porn and snuff films too?


Wow...ahhh....right. Thanks for that contribution to the discussion. Not.

And to answer your question....you have the children leave the room. It's not hard to figure out. As for the rest of what you said, well, I teach my children to walk away when someone is just being hateful and not worth their time to educate so...bye.



What is amazing is that folks who really have a need to know what is going on in areas where they own property or have loved ones are coming to ATS to find out information because the information that is known is being covered up/withheld/hidden. Thanks to all who are at least helping these folks find out answers to their questions with links to information and sources. It is a sad time.

Peace.

Galveston gov claims that there are 15000 residents on the island now, so if true, that would account for most.

actually on Strand, which is VERY close to UTMB, the water came from the harbor side and burst walls between downstairs apartments and turned cars over onto their roofs. this is a first hand, well now second, report..I would not call over 9 feet of water minor flooding, and no coverage of this area at all on the news. Hmmmmmm. Also there are things beside debris floating about..

KHOU has resumed regular programming. They will go back to live Ike reporting at 10PM CT

I'm not sure if any one mentioned this but KHOU reported earlier that the whole Island is now closed and all residents/victims will be asked to leave. Residents returning from evacuations will not be allowed on the island.

yeah, that's what my last link to KHOU was about. An article stating the TxDoT has posted "guards" at the causeway I-45 bridge and no one can come in.

This is ridiculous, there is no coverage of the area because rescue efforts are being put front and center, the last thing EMS needs to be worrying about is rescuing REPORTERS and stopping LOOTERS when there are still people out there that need help! I have seen no evidence of anything sinister in this entire thread, its ALL hearsay. Somebody close this thread, this is plain and simple disinformation. There are no mass casualties in Texas.
