Doctor Blog--The Days After Hurricane Ike

Posted Sep 14 2008 5:17pm

Well, now the hurricane is gone and we are left with a large city with no electricity,
lots of debris in the roads, lots of people calling for help/rescue who chose to stay.

Personal reports received of families who decided to ride out the hurricane and are
now in dire circumstances.  They can't get out because of blocked roadways or
they didn't plan for enough food/water after.  Some report they will hunker down
with canned food, bottled water and no electricity ("like camping").

Red Cross volunteers are getting a much needed break today from 24 hour mass
care.  There is still plenty to do but, less frantic and slower pace.

New shelters are going up around Houston for "post hurricane mass care".  The
real disaster begins.............

Resources are very low and if you can donate even a few dollars to help with
basics such as food and water,  it will help the American Red Cross provide the material
that the volunteers can distribute to those in need.

Please help.
