NO Update

Seems that some bright spark in New orleans has decided to open fire on helicopters helping people out of the city. One National Guardsman has been injured and the rescue effort has been halted.

This is on top of various gangs taking over hotels, and other establishments, and barricading themselves in whilst having gun battles between each other and other criminal organisations.

I also note that of the 100,000 believed to still be in the city awaiting evac there are 10,000 patients and hospital staff from nine hospitals and at least 7,600 prison inmates.

Sounds like a fun recipe all round.
