Three years ago Katrina...now Gustav. Like millions of others we are watching closely and hoping the dire predictions do not come true.
I spoke last night with Randy May from Randy's Rangers in Pass Christian MS (we have worked there at least 4 or 5 times). He is in the process of evacuating. He is taking as much as he can North and staying in Jackson. He supposedly has secured a spot that was safe from Katrina to begin feeding operations following the storm if the need arises.
Stay tuned for more information. We will be helping in anyway we can (Fall Break trip? or even a long weekend--I do not teach on Fridays).
Until then, by far the best information again (they were brilliant during and immediately after Katrina come from NOLA.com. Biloxi's Sun Herald is also good.
Good luck to you all! Our thoughts and prayers are with you!
