Requests and what we can give 

We're still receiving massive amounts of e-mails from folks looking for information on very specific locations, people, etc. We will struggle to do this because of manpower limitiations, but we will try to paint broad pictures for you. We're getting lots of requests for Long Beach and Pass Christian information. Here's what I've got right now, and it's not much because there's no communication there and emergency personnel haven't been able to make their way very far into Pass Christian. Hancock County is largely unknown ground at this point. I've posted stuff from the first foray by National Guardsmen into Pass Christian. The southern area of Diamondhead below Interstate 10 has been heavily damaged.

Concerned about status of the following families: Drew Allen (Allen Beverages) family; Ross Langston family; Pam & Tom Doster (Long Beach). Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone on the gulf coast from former resident, Tim Arant (Tampa, FL).
Be prepared for the next center huricaine or find another one that's similar. As the Boy Scouts say: "Be Prepared"!
