    Are there any websites being set up for those lost/missing from the hurricane?

    On the front page there are two links, one to let people know you're okay, the other to find the missing.

    http://www.gulfcoastnews.com has dedicated database set up. In one day over 3800 records created. But some records are for entire familes.

    http://katrinahelp.info/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

    It has gone unreported as of yet but there could be as many 100,000 missing people announced as a number as early as Friday.

    Absolut and Olivia, thank you so much for posting these. I watched some program today about the missing resulting from Katrina and they were talking about how many families were looking for their loved ones online. Not so much because they thought they would find them, as that they just don't know what else to do. But they also talked about how many sites there were, and they suggested that some central database should be constructed.

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    In addition to media websites postings on blogs and community sites abound. Craigslist, a city-by-city classified and chat site, saw a 300 percent increase in use of its New Orleans section on Wednesday, says CEO Jim Buckmaster.

    http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...toryId=4827634

    http://www.bloggersblog.com/

    Both articles provide multiple links to some blogs which people are using to try to locate other people.

    BillyGoatGruff ~ You're welcome. New Orleans is a city I hold near and dear to my heart and I am so sorry to hear you have friends who are missing. I have met wonderful people there as well, became engaged there and am absolutely horrified at the devastation. I remember reading a bunch of posts from you about the city of New Orleans on another Missing Person's thread a while back, so when this happened I was thinking of you, I'm terribly sorry to hear you had so many close friends affected by this tragedy and I hope that you are soon able to locate them all and confirm their well being. Please keep us updated. I will keep you and yours in my thoughts.

    mysteriew~ I'm glad I could help. Thank you for your posts as well - I'm often able to find great info from the links you post in other threads, I do appreciate it.

    To the missing and families of the missing in New Orleans, you are in my thoughts and a candle burns brightly in my home with hope for a positive outcome.

    I have been following the coverage of Hurricane Katrina and am absolutely stunned by the human suffering and devastation in the wake of this disaster.

    As a Canadian, I wanted to know what assistance our government was going to extend to the people of the United States. Prime Minister Paul Martin issued a formal statement extending sympathy and promising aid and support where needed. Our Deputy Prime Minister subsequently contacted Michael Chertoff, the U.S. Homeland Security Secretary, and informed him that Canada is ready to extend and provide any assistance needed (working with their partners in provincial and territorial governments). Following this offer the U.S. Department of Health and Services is now communicating with the Deputy PM of what varied services and aid Canada can provide.

    Indicating Canada's wish to help our American neighbors, the Deputy Prime Minister was quoted as saying, "The United States has a long and proud history of assisting other countries in times of crisis, and we now stand ready to help them in their time of need."

    This news release also provided a link to the Canadian Red Cross providing information to individual Canadians if they wanted to make a financial donation. If any Canadian "Websleuthers" are able and interested, call 1-800-418-1111 or online at www.redcross.ca

    I just donated $100.00 and it was the easiest $100.00 I have ever parted with. My thoughts and prayers are with all who have suffered because of this horrible tragedy. I apologise if I have gone on too long! Thanks.
