I just wanted to know if anyone knows any TravelPod members or have family that were affected by Hurricane Katrina. Let us know so we can send some prayers their way.

This whole thing reminds me of the flood I got stuck in in Eastern Europe in Aug 2002. It was a major crisis and the thing that bothered me the most, was that the media coverage back home was not very accurate. That's when I realized the importance of being as true and detailed as possible when writing my experiences around the world. Makes me glad that we have real life travelers reporting the facts here in their TravelPods.

We hope that everyone affected by the hurricane recovers as quickly as possible.
