This is like the natural disaster equivalent of 9/11.

I'm back in Baton Rouge (aka The new New Orleans). It's crowded and the power is still out in a lot of parts of the city. There are a lot of ambulance sirens every so often. My apartment complex was so crowded there was hardly anywhere to park. Out of all the people that left New Orleans I'd say about 75% of them are in B.R. right now and it doesn't look like they'll be leaving for weeks, maybe even months. New Orleans pretty much doesn't even exist right now. To say things look bad is a gross understatement. I've never seen anything like this before and hope I never do again. This is like the natural disaster equivalent of 9/11. New Orleans is getting most of the news coverage because it's a major city but places like Gulfport and Slidell got hit even harder if you can believe that. New Orleans will take the longest to re-build though because it's underwater and what's scary is that as I write this the water is still rising. We need God on a daily basis but now more than ever. Let us not forget from Whom our blessings, healings, and strength comes from. Pray.
