Just received this comment on the post with pictures of the Mississippi area that was directly hit by Katrina:
Back from on ground East Biloxi, where the Vietnamese community is totally destroyed, and languishes without power, phones, or communications (1,000+/-). Red Cross and FEMA having difficult[y] due to language barriers.
Need communications if anyone has ability to AM broadcast to area.
If anyone can help out, let me know and I’ll forward your message, or email Tony directly.
I have no verification for any of this, but I also have no reason to doubt him.
