This e-mail message just came in from the Louisiana Department of Public Safety’s public affairs office:
Currently, we are unable to provide information on a particular location in
that area. A phone number has been set up as a clearing house of
information regarding friends and loved ones. Please contact 866-GET-INFO.
Obviously, they’re getting a lot of calls. I haven’t been able to get through yet. Please feel free to give it a try and let me know what your results are.
UPDATE: I just found this phone number to check on survivors: 225-925-6626. So far it’s been busy when I called.
