The Democratic Daily’s Donnie in Houma, LA has emailed to let us know he is okay.
His parrish, Terrebonne has sustained some serious flooding according to CNN.
Here’s some quips from the email from Donnie:
Pamela, I had to swallow my pride and sign up with aol to get on the web. Winds picked back up last night, and continue to pound us. Last night was a concert of transformers exploding. What I thought was the end, ended up turning out to be the calm before the storm. Lost my TV cable last night at about 10:40, and I have roadrunner. I am just getting to go back online, by actually going with AOL that I loath.
Things down here are gonna explode now. The final fuse I spoke about, has been lit. People are in a rage and are currently setting up what is now being dubbed as a “Survival Summit” and plan on starting a campaign to get the attention of the Gov. There has been suggestions as to loading up 50 or more buses, and going to DC to get their attention. Imagine 1000’s of pissed off, angry, fire breathing, true blue, rebel decendants, acting like pit vipers, looking for someone to bite, and wanting answers to why our levees that we have fought for over ten years for, has not been done.
The levees have given way, and even my own bayou that I grew up on is swamped, and I can’t even make it in the upper sections, to check on friends. The only way down there, is by boat now. I have more pics to send, that I took today. Till the cable comes on, I can use this to relay messages.
We got a bad dealing with this one. It multiplied what had happened already, and now I expect the bottom half of Terrebonne Parish to end up flooded. Water is still rising. Wind is still whistling around here and pushing more water in as I write this.
GOD help Bush and any member of the Congress that stands in the way of these people. I can only hope that people like JK, will come and take part in this. I have been telling you and the rest of the crew, that times were changing, and now it is gonna take place.I will fill you in on the rest later.
