Choppers airlifting people out of N.O. now. Taking them to the airport. It looks like they are moving a lot of people quickly and smoothly. Using sea stalions, hueys, and shithooks.

Iknew when the USN showed up, that the situation would make a big turn around. The ship i was on in the 80's ,was sent to Jamaica when it was flattened by a hurricane. This same situation as in NO but not as many people.

Yep.

After all, those amphibs are designed to move large numbers of people quickly and take care of large numbers of medical emergencies (I read somewhere that on the Wasp class every bunk is designed to be used as a basic hospital bed).

Sounds like Bush is to blame for this stunning account of competancy and efficiency.
