I ... was in the most severely affected areas on Tuesday and Wednesday. Some of the stories of the residents in the Hillpoint neighborhood are especially incredible. If any of you are interested in seeing some unpublished pics from on the ground, go to [Flickr's American Red Cross page]. I spoke at length with Governor Kaine on Tuesday; he is a genuinely good "normal" guy, and he is committed to helping them rebuild. I was at Katrina both in New Orleans and along the Lake Pontchartrain coast south of Slidell where the shore is east facing...the storm damage there was obviously widespread from the 18 foot surge (I have some unreal pics of that too). But what I saw in parts of Suffolk reminded me of what I saw in Louisiana. I can NOT believe that everyone made it out alive in Suffolk. That community has been around for about 400 years - they will make it back stronger than ever.
