Katrina September 10, 2005 6:44 PM

When Katrina was about to make landfall, for some reason I felt compelled to watch one of the all news stations.  Here in Canada, I watch the CTV one and flip to CNN for the American updates.  I have no family nor friends in the areas that were hit, so I really can't explain just why Katrina should hold my interest from BEFORE it made landfall...I don't recall ever watching this intensly with any other hurricane!  I'm one who believes in things happen for a reason, so I figure I'm not meant to question the whys of my interest, but to follow where it takes me.

As a genealogist, I've been trying to find information about what's become of the cemeteries in these regions, so far with no luck.  As I go about my search, I come across other links that many of you may want to bookmark.


This is the Safe List - a list of KNOWN survivors, their names, where they are from and where they are right now.  It's updated regularly.

This is for the CNN Help Centre in general with many links to other related items.  There is also information on how you can add your name to the Safe List if any of you are from the region affected.  Again, it's updated regularly.
