Where to post your search requests 

The next couple of e-mails are ones I'm sure we'll be getting lots of in the coming hours and days. We've got a request from Larry Cotton in Lawton, Okla., for Robert Bass and family to contact him at (580) 284-0388, and one from John Downer, looking for information on Harold (Jack) Spurlock from Moss Point, who may be at the Moss Point High School shelter. John says our "I'm OK Line" has been busy all day, which is to be expected given the massive scope of this disaster. The Sun Herald has a message board for folks to post this sort of information. I'm just now seeing it, and it looks like an amazing tool for you to use with lots of activity. Wow. Great job, folks. This is doing a much faster job of anything I could ever hope to do, especially on a slow dial-up connection. (One other tip for Jack: Check with your local American Red Cross chapter, and see if you can send a health and welfare request to that shelter through them. They may have ways to get information from that shelter through other channels, like amateur radio operators.)

Just visited your blog, it's great. I have a jobs seeking website which is informative and you can find info of different job natures, hope that it will be useful in your job seeking
For the next hurricane ; the easy way to keep going.
like tumbler and tipsy days hopefully we will remain in high spirits. well, good day
I just came across your blog and wanted to drop you a note telling you how impressed I was with the information you have posted here.
I also have a web site & blog about first mortgage
so I know what I'm talking about when I say your site is top-notch! Keep up the great work!
