This is exerpted from an email that I just received from a friend and RVer in Biloxi. He is a two tour Viet Nam vet and retired from the US Air Force. quote:The aftermath of hurricane Katrina is an experience worse than my combat tours. The system of government has failed in Biloxi. There are hundreds of trucks and more trucks running up and down the road with no where to go. All bridges in and out, are destroyed with the exception of the I-110 bridge and it will be closed a week for repair. FEMA has yet to establish an office. The only Red Cross trucks I see are meal wagons from as far north as New York. The feted odor of dead and dying things permeate the air. The only help I have with provisions is the Catholic Aid society where I can get food and water. The cemeteries located on the beach front were washed out with their coffins both open and closed are piled up along the washed out roads. The sewage is a black mess when you flush the toilet the water is cess pool quality. The last time I saw chaos like this was when I walked through a burned village in Vietnam and the people were standing around with blank looks on their faces and destruction was everywhere. I see the same thing here with over 38,000 homes destroyed with people living in tents, old cars and on the ground. Looting is rampant with gangs of armed hoods roaming the streets. Traffic is grid-lock with gasoline $5 or $6 dollars a gallon with lines a mile long.
