More pictures

I apologize, but some of these pictures may be duplicates. I'm absolutely exhausted, I'm trying to get these out quickly, and I have them coming from 3sources, so I'm pretty much just throwing them up willy-nilly without looking at them or sorting. Tomorrow I'll show some of the less important ones, like those of the vans, volunteers, or lesser-damaged areas. But we'll post them all eventually.

I am still up, for some reason.


our breakfast "tailgate"

Ezekiel's truck

last minute first aid kit purchases

someone's house is gone

CFE (electric company) has a monumental task ahead of them:

no one will be living here any more:

This appears to have been a beachfront hotel:

I'll take all the clothes that I can manage to stuff in an extra suitcase for donating while there. It just occured to me that the empty suitcase will come in handy for souveniers to bring back home.

Speechless. Period.

I have just sent around a link to your report Heather together with the plea to donate some money to "our" paypal link to a number of people ........ if these pics don't make them run,run,run to their paypal accounts to give a dollar or two then I don't know what will.

Thank you for all that you volunteers did there!!
I wish I could be there to help right now.

thanks for posting heather. and to all those who donated and went to help. the pictures are so sad that i had tears going through them. seeing such destruction is just... amazing though that the people, though no longer have homes and stuff, that they seems so strong in the face of something so horrible.

anyway $$$ is on the way.
