"The parish urged residents not to flush toilets, wash clothes or dishes, or even take showers out of concern that the system might back up and send sewage flowing in home and businesses."
And Bush is going to give a BILLION dollars to rearm and rebuild Georgia, Central Asia?
"New Orleans residents return; But many find homes are still without power" by Mary Foster and Melinda Deslatte, Associated Press | September 4, 2008
NEW ORLEANS - Thousands of people who fled Hurricane Gustav forced the city to reluctantly open its doors yesterday, but nearly 1.2 million homes and businesses across Louisiana were still without electricity, and officials said it could take as long as a month to fully restore power.
Restoring power was critical to reopening schools, businesses, and neighborhoods. Without electricity, gas stations could not pump fuel, and hospitals were running out of fuel for generators. Some places never lost power, including the Superdome, where the Saints planned to open their regular football season Sunday.
Oh, well, hey, the IMPORTANT THINGS are taken care of then!!!
In Jefferson Parish, which also reopened yesterday, officials reported that most sewage-treatment stations were out of service because there was no power. The parish urged residents not to flush toilets, wash clothes or dishes, or even take showers out of concern that the system might back up and send sewage flowing in home and businesses.
But we are going to send a billion dollars to Georgia!
