thanks for posting, this Silver (and Brenda)
A high-school friend and his partner are down there - they have been living in NOLA for years and years. I just called his mother who lives in my area, and she hasn't heard from them yet. I'm praying for them, and everyone else.
*the saddest thing about all of this is that his mother has lost two sons already - my friend is the last child of hers - oh this is just horrible*
