WebCam and Radio Feeds

Shouldn't be surprised but I can't access the Louisana National Guard channels because they are full! Damn the rest of the world for their morbid curiosity.... http://216.22.26.45:8002/listen.pls

Have got webcam action from inside New Orleans though. At present I'm looking at dead, waterless streets, all quiet. Have heard reports though (from people who've managed to access the National Guard channel) that armed civilians have surrounded police in parts of the city and it's not sounding good. Also civil unrest has been reported in Baton Rouge and the university there has advised all it's students to lock up and stay inside their accomodation units.

If anyone else knows of any online emergency service/national guard feeds or of operating webcams in the New Orleans/Gulf area I'd be interested in hearing/seeing them.

Thanks.

Angus, are you sure your level of interest in all this is healthy? I don't remember you making all these posts about the tsunami.

I've been keeping track off and on because I have friends and relations down there, but your blog makes it sound like you're not doing anything else.

Take a break! I'm sure they'll make a movie about it later.

The tsunami hit when I was at my parents and devoid of the internet. Don't worry I was watching and keeping track as well as I could via terrestial TV, a couple of freeview channels and teletext!

I do agree I need to take a break though. It's creeping towards 2.30am here and I've been watching the news/chatting to one of my flatmates since she got in from work at 1 and could do with a few zzz's before getting up for work in a few hours time!!!

Here's something new (to me, anyway). Satellite pics of the area:

My mom's neighborhood (2445025.jpg) doesn't look that bad, but her apartment building looks like it was one of the few to suffer damage (mostly lost shingles). Maybe she'll finally move out of that craphole.

The damaged infrastructure
Here's good one:

What does that to a highway? And if all the roads are like that, how do you get trucks in?

There must be some kind of land line from downtown NO to Houston because they're evac'ing trucks that way.
