Katrina from the air

The National Weather Service has posted some horrifying aerial photos of the devastation along the Gulf Coast. Meanwhile, click here to donate money online to the Red Cross. If you want to volunteer, the closest Red Cross chapter is the one in Augusta, and its Web site is here. The site says they have set up a shelter at Warren Road Baptist Church on Washington Road in Augusta. They're also offering classes on how to help people in disasters (as I understand, people who want to volunteer are being told they shouldn't go to the Gulf unless they are Red Cross-certified disaster relief volunteers). The class schedule is online here.

Meanwhile, if you are trying to find someone lost in the Katrina-affected area, try these two sites: The National Next-of-Kin Registry or the Red Cross' Katrina people-finder page. Or see complete coverage of Hurricane Katrina from the New Orleans Times-Picayune newspaper.
