Storms in the South

I have been watching the news coverage about the storms and flooding in the South. Of course, I have to go to the websites of local newspapers to get any information, no national media or media in other parts of the country covered anything but the initial report.

It breaks my heart to see the images and hear the stories. I am lucky in that my family did not suffer too much damage.

I wonder though, will the government actually help this situation or will it be another issue like Katrina. Although to be fair, most of that issue was with the government of Louisiana and New Orleans. The towns in Mississippi that were wiped out of existence actually had an easier time dealing with their state government.
