It's every bit as bad as we feared. Most of town is underwater. There are people and animals trapped on rooftops and in attics. Bridges are out. Debris everywhere. My place is uptown. I hear that it was likely dry during the storm... but now that the levees are broken.. I don't know... wish I could have gotten more of my stuff out. I left at about 11 AM in a Tercel full of random crap. It took 15 hours to drive to Tuscaloosa. Stayed one night there in a Red Cross shelter. Got to Nashville the next day. Not sure what to do next. Hope everyone is safe.
