Audio: Grassroots Groups Offer Assistance in Algiers

New Orleans is under a dusk to dawn curfew, with near constant helicopter flyovers. Military, police, & private security patrol the streets. Twice daily, low-flying helicopters drop pesticides to kill mosquitoes, which have grown in numbers after the floods. The Algiers neighborhood on the west bank of the Mississippi River did not flood after Hurricane Katrina passed through, and some residents who fled prior to the disaster are starting to return.
