Other Hurricane Victims
My daughter Sarah just called. She heard from a friend who works at the zoo's research center in New Orleans. The zoo itself is okay, although water is rising in the city and heading in that direction. The research center is beside a levy and flooded. No animal caretakers are there and many of the animals are feared dead or escaped. All of her friends are safe, but their homes are flooded and won't be able to return for a week, maybe longer. This is one hurricane in which the worse may be the aftermath of the storm rather than the storm itself.
