Another check-in site
Posted by Teresa at 05:10 PM * 4 comments

People have been using the craigslist>New Orleans>lost & found page as an improvised check-in site, posting messages from people who are trying to find their New Orleans relatives, and from New Orleans relatives who are trying to be found.

Since you said to let you know:

My aunts are safe, and out of the city. All family now officially present and accounted for.

More details at my LiveJournal if anyone wants them. Thanks for your concern, Teresa, and the wonderful job you and Patrick are doing with all the New Orleans news and links and discussion. You guys knock CNN's coverage into a cocked hat.

And while we're at it, my wife's aunt and uncle in Biloxi are okay, too, and their house (the map had no elevations, so I didn't know they were way up high) stands, with a little water in it.

Yes, I've been through a flood, and I know even an inch of nasty water is the shits, but still.
