These are from the daughter of my dad's co-worker, who lives in New Orleans. I removed contact info - let me know if you want it (dfg-web (at) lightningfield.com).

Dear Friends and Family,
I got a call from my husband, Dr. Ross Judice of Acadian Ambulance
and Air Med Services, at 4:30 AM. He has been working at the medical
triage center at Louis Armstrong Airport in New Orleans since noon
yesterday and is working in tandem with FEMA operations. In fact he
is in the headquarters as I write this, coordinating with the command
center. He asked that I get this message out to as many people as
The airport is now full of over 2000 sick and injured patients. Ross
"Message from New Orleans"
says that people are dying at a rate of 8-10 an hour in there. More
people are coming in by the hour and. FEMA has as yet no plan to
evacuate these people.
