The Human Spirit can never be paralyzed. If you are breathing, you can dream.
I'm very concerned about people in Mississippi and Louisiana who have watched these storms the past two years hit Florida and Alabama and may have a little lackadaisical attitude toward this thing.
The flooding is just everywhere... New Orleans, all through Mississippi and Alabama
All those low-lying areas are just devastated.
This is truly a catastrophic event
This hurricane has caused devastation over a wide area.
[Floodwaters were still rising as much as 3 inches, or 7.6 centimeters, an hour in parts of New Orleans late Tuesday. In other areas, they were beginning to subside.] I don't want to alarm anyone that New Orleans is filling up like a bowl, ... That isn't happening.
I need the American people to recognize how catastrophic this is, to be patient and to work with us.
I surmise there are people in New Orleans who won't be able to get back to their homes for months, if ever.
We're finding more and more people coming out of the woodwork, ... They're appearing in places we didn't know they existed.
This disaster did not end the day Katrina made landfall
