New Orleans

With New Orleans being hit on Monday by the savagery of Hurricane Katrina - though not as catastrophically as was feared - I'm putting the RSS feed from Metroblogging New Orleans up on the site (see left). This also links through to media sites in New Orleans and Louisiana. There's talk of looting, alas, and some discussion, which I think unseemly at this time, of politicisation of the tragedy.

Update 2am Thursday 1/9/05 AEST: I've replaced the metroblog feed, which sadly is no longer either adequate or appropriate as the full extent of the devastation in the Gulf of Mexico coastline becomes clear. The Yahoo! feed at left of Indian Ocean Tsunami news has been replaced for now by one covering hurricanes and tropical storms.
