Hurricane Relief Part II

This was written by a relief worker with an organization affiliated with my church:

"I've done search and rescue operations for the past two days with various agencies. I was ordered to pull my boats out last night and left hundreds if not thousands screaming for help on rooftops and floating. Health conditions are unimaginable. Words will never be able to capture what my crew has seen. I've been reassigned, and search and rescue has become military ops only. Some places are out of hand. The hospitals are getting really out of hand as people become more desperate. Please pray for south Louisiana. Severity of the situation has been underestimated."

It makes me so sad...and angry. I'll keep it at that (otherwise, I will go OFF). Thank goodness for the relief workers and all other volunteers.
