News reports say that 80% of New Orleans is under water, so the chances
are very good, though Canal Street, on early reports, wasn't too bad.
I can't remember if those spots are near each other. I was there too.
My prayers and hopes of safety go out to everyone in the devastated
areas, especially in New Orleans and Biloxi which seem to be the worst
of the devastated areas.
