Exclamation PTO 'Head Count' of Members who were in Hurricane Katrina's path

If you know of an active PTO member that you believe lives in the path that Hurricane Katrina took, please post their name here and if you have heard from them yet..

Obviously, New Orleans and the surrounding Parishes are hit very hard and most of the Mississippi Gulf Coast has been devastated or completely destroyed.. Even some of Alabama got hit hard.

Thanks,
David

I was in her path! This is my first time to be able to even view pics of the devastation in New Orleans and our own Gulf Coast. I've listened to the radio for the last three days and could only imagine what things were like there and it's soooo much worse than that! All I've seen is my own hometown of Meridian and it's pretty bad here - but nothing compared to what I've seen today on the internet. We are still without power and cable in nearly my entire area - phones are water are out in some areas too.

I have a tree on my home, but the damage is repairable and I'm so thankful for that - especially when so very many have been left homeless by this disaster. As my friends in the Texas Forum know - I hate my job - but today I was so glad to have one to come to and that it has power and A/C!

My thoughts and prayers are with those further south and those with family and friends still not accounted for.

Thanks, David!! I'm sure it won't be a QUICK fix, but at least I do have a home to fix! And I'm so thankful for that! It could have been so much worse.......

Still hoping to see you this weekend at Mo's though......provided the airport opens up again!!!

Thanks, joeswife!!

There are three members (that I can think of) who have been active in the MS forum in the path of the storm. I-Care (in LA), kla163 (hope that user name is right?) and Tojo&Mar both from Coastal MS. I am holding out hope that we will hear from them within the next few days. They, as well as many others are definitely in my thoughts.

Hope everyone gets accounted for here. Perhaps those who haven't made it to sign in are without electricity and will do so as soon as they are able.

Positive thoughts and prayers going out to everyone who was in the path of this destruction.

Glad to hear that you're ok jessnkat. My thoughts, and prayers go out to you, and all those affected by this terrible disaster. I hope you can fix your home soon, and you're right it could have been a lot worse. We barely missed Hurricane Emily ourselves, and I know what it means to be thankful to still have what belongs to you. Good thing is that materialistic things can always be replaced, glad to hear you are ok!

I've heard from Doingtimeinlove. I think she was even on here for a few. She did evacuate and made it to Texas. She is now back home. Her house is fine, but her parents lost their roof. She said here town is about 35 miles west of New Orleans and the damage wasn't too bad.
