Hurricane Ike Hero

I received a wonderful note from a gentlemen named Andy Coats. Andy has been working with volunteers on hurricane disaster relief since Hurricane Katrina in 2005. His blog, The Missionlog at http://www.missionlog.wordpress.com/, is an extraordinary narrative and visual account of Hurricane Ike’s devastation. Andy reports that the devastation in coastal Texas is very severe — equal and sometimes worse than the damage from Katrina in New Orleans.

Overshadowed by the election and economic meltdown, it is easy to forget about the horrible destruction in this part of the county. Disaster recovery can be a very long-term endeavor (in my case it took a year-and-a-half to completely rebuild my home). Andy’s blog provides a wealth of information about how you can help.
