Bob,

I am glued to the tv this morning. There are reports of major structural damage in downtown New Orleans and the pumps there are off. They hope to have them back up around 3 this afternoon.

Gulfport,MS is getting slammed. They have a reporter who is out in it (crazy person) on Fox News. There are reports of a hotel that has collapsed in Harvey, MS with people trapped inside and reports of people trapped in attics with the bottom of their homes filled with water.

Correction, that is Harvey, LA where the hotel has collapsed. Also there are reports of boats being knocked into buildings in Gulfport, MS.

There are reports of 911 calls of people trapped in buildings, but rescue people can't get to them right now.
