I’m quite sure just about the whole world is aware of Hurricane Katrina and its effect on New Orleans, the utter devistation and the resulting pain and suffering it has inflicted on the residents of the once fine city. I’ll be the first to admit I don’t know much of New Orleans other than that they have Mardi Gra and … well really thats it.
Since the tragedy I’ve been a regular reader of Interdictor Blog watching both the live webcam and also looking at some of the pictures around New Orleans when they have gone outside. The author works for Directnic, a web hosting and domain name hosting company whose offices are located on the tenth floor of an office block in New Orleans and throughout the Hurricane and after they have continued blogging and taking pictures.
I’ve spent a lot of time tonight looking at some of the pictures. Some of the city appears to still be intact and has many grand looking buildings but now the biggest threat to the city seems to be coming from fires rather than anything else. Its all very sad really.
