So now at l(e)ast we know what LAPD stands for.Originally posted by Serenity:
LA is the Postal abbreviation for the state of Louisiana. (As if there were another city of New Orleans in another state....)
I can't think of anything else LA would stand for...
Looks like what happened to Pensacola's bridge's last year, only worse....Originally posted by Shapley:
Listening to a representative from the American Red Cross in Baton Rouge on the CBC this morning, I had the idea that even if massive relief supplies were available, there's nowhere to land them and that access in general is a huge problem."MDS would like to emphasize that this is not the time for volunteers. Right now, search and rescue operations are in still in effect and this will remain a priority for the next few days. People are asked not to enter disaster regions with the hope of volunteering as officials will either escort you out of the area or arrest you. Residents themselves have not been allowed back to their homes and will not be allowed to do so for several days. Check the MDS website for volunteer opportunities beginning in the next several weeks or join with a recognized voluntary service organization with ties to established disaster response agencies. People seeking information about relatives in affected areas are encouraged to call their local office of the American Red Cross.
MDS is accepting monetary donations only at this time. You can donate through the main page of the website or by mailing a check to MDS. In the USA at: Mennonite Disaster Service, 1018 Main Street, Akron, PA 17501 or in Canada at Mennonite Disaster Service, 306-2265 Pembina Hwy, Winnipeg, MB R3T 5J3."
