Hurricane Katrina Damage

I've been meaning to post this for a while...

My friend Kirk Benson, who served with me on USS Ouellet, is a Navy oceanographer and was responsible for forecasting weather in the New Orleans area. He lived in Slidell, Louisiana, until Hurricane Katrina blew through. Interestingly, he recommended the evacuation of Navy facilities in New Orleans and was sent to Texas before the storm.

Pictures of the damage to his house are here. It all seems a lot more real when you know someone affected.
