Why threathen someone else with guns to protect the same stuff you might not even need in a normal situation? (He or she might be in need of serious help instead of a color tv). Bolt and tighten everything down and leave the area. And remember all the help from the volunteers of the Food-not-bombs/anarchist groups after Katrina. Not every stranger in sight is a possible looter or thief.

After Katrina, everything was broken for a week or two. I went through the 1969 Hurricane Camille at the Holiday Inn Biloxi and it was a long time before anything worked, except gas lights in the courtyard. The storm surge came over the levee (US90) and did a lot of damage to the hotel.

I would also like to thank the reporters for putting themselves in harms way so the rest of us can see what is happening first hand.

Thank you!
