Cry From New Orleans: "People are Dying in the Streets!"

2005_09_01t135157_241x450_us_weather_katrina.jpgReports are pouring about the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina that hit the Gulf Coast this week; residents of the decimated and submerged City of New Orleans have been affected the most. An estimated 25,000 people have filled the New Orlean's Superdome where they are packed together in exhausting heat without working toilets or clean running water. Because a rescue worker was reportedly shot, evacuations were stopped on Wednesday. Despite the fact that people are dying in the streets, rescue workers were diverted from their work of humanitarian assistance to protecting building from looting, according to reports.
