CNN says the people at the Superdome, who number between 12,000 and 15,000, could be there for a week. Apparently, plans to rescue these people are being made. But nothing has been revealed thus far. With rising floodwaters, it would seem to me that some action should be determined immediately.
The word from Lieutenant Governor Landrieu: 3,000 rescued to date. Also, the helicopters that were planning to drop 3,000 pound sandbags and stop the levee never arrived. Mayor Ray Nagin extremely upset. Where were these helicopters? In Iraq, as other reports have noted?
