    Default Well, just got the call to head out to New Orleans

    Guys, I'm out of here heading down to New Orleans with the Shreveport Fire Department USAR team. (Urban Search And Rescue). I joined this team with the department shortly after 9-11-01. Our team, along with 2 teams from Texas and large team from Fla, are all gonna meet in New Orleans this evening. We're heading out at 2pm this afternoon.

    Guys, I can't begin to tell you how serious this storm is for the City of New Orleans. If you don't know much about this city, this city sits 8 feet below sea level. New Orleans sits surrounded by the Mississippi River and Lake Ponchatrain. Just heard if this storm passes west of New Orleans, the devastation would be like nothing most people have ever seen. As some of you may or may not know, the north and east side of any hurricane produce the most wind and damage, because the winds are pushing water ashore. The west side pushes water away from land, because the winds are from the north. This is why it's bad if this storm continues a westward wobble to New Orleans, this city will bear the brunt of Katrina. 175 mph winds, with gust to 213 mph, will cause utter distruction to New Orleans and the surrounding areas.

    I see that the Superdome will be housing thousands of people from New Orleans that can't or wouldn't evacuate. Even tho the Superdome is a great structure, I don't feel comfortable about ppl being there, but I guess we shall see.

    Anyways, just wanted to tell you all so long and I'll be back on when we get home. I'll try to get pics for you guys. And if I do, Seen, will you post em? I still have yet to learn how to post pics on here.

    HH <---Hoping for the best, expecting the worst-----

    PS. Keep us (firefighters/police/EMS) in your prayers and damn sure keep the people of Southern Louisiana and Mississippi in your prayers also. See ya when we get back!

    "You may recognize some of these chemicals. Let's start with cyanide...The one the Aum Shinrikyo cult attempted to use to commit mass murder in a Tokyo subway in May 1995...The same cyanide produced routinely--1.4 million tons per year--for use in the production of plastics, adhesives, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and so on. It seems that those who put small amounts of cyanide in subways are terrorists. But those who produce it in mass quantities and contaminate broad reaches of soil, water, and air, killing countless living beings, are not terrorists, but rather capitalists, and are counted among the finest and most powerful people on the planet."

    aww, man this shits scary, my Best Friend just moved out there to go to college at Loyola. i hope she will be ok, i sent her a message like 5 mins ago to see if shes alright. im guessing shes gonna end upin the Superdome cause she has no way of getting anywhere else, everyone she knows is in Cali. Well HH if you end up patrolling the SUperdome, keep an eye out for a girl named Verenice. tell her that her Buddy Nathan, said hi and to be safe, thanx dude
