|Hurricane Katrina Pounds the Southern US|
Hurricane Katrina has totally devastated the southern Gulf coast of the
United States. Hundreds of people are feared dead. Two levees have
broken around New Orleans and 80% of the city is underwater.
Floodwaters are only rising. Fresh water and electricity may not be
restored for weeks. Refugees are being evacuated, though all major
highways leading into New Orleans are completely destroyed.
While not Mars-related news, we feel that we must take this
opportunity to try to raise awareness of the various relief funds that
are available. If you would like to help, visit a local
Lowe's hardware store to have your donation matched up to $1 million
dollars. Additionally, the Red Cross is launching the largest relief
effort in its history. You can visit their website here.
Also, Walmart is also offering credit card donations through its website here.
