Good Morning,


  I want to reinforce some of the message that has gotten out, and direct
people in the right direction. Please remember that what you see and hear on
the news is the sensational and blown out of proportion aspects of the
storm. It is quite boring to report on the areas that are not severally
damaged or impacted by the storm.


  As we all know, there are many people in the SCA that are chomping at the
bit to help out those affected. To make sure that this is coordinated
correctly we have a coastal regional volunteer who will be coordinating
proper direction of relief efforts. Sir Simonn and Mistress Tessa
(tessa at gt.rr.com) originally started coordinating this for their local group
for Gustav and it sort of snowballed into a continuation for the entire
region for Ike.


  If you have any damage or know of someone that will need outside
assistance, please contact Sir Simonn and Mistress Tessa.

  If you wish to help or get contacted by people trying to help, please
direct them to Sir Simonn and Mistress Tessa.


  In the end we want the right amount of assistance, in the right form, at
the right time.


  A lot of what I've been hearing from those who stayed in the area is that
damage is mostly in the form of power outages, down trees and damage to
outside yard items such as fences and an occasional window. I've not heard
of any major damage to houses or water damage inside of houses for our
people, but not everyone has checked in.


  Now that being said, there are a lot of our people who evacuated the high
risk areas near the coast or in low lying areas. These people will not know
the extent of damage to their property possibly for a couple more days. Some
areas are being closed by the authorities, and even Houston is under a
nighttime curfew to assist in relief efforts and minimize opportunistic


  If we find that the extent of damage is worse than initial reports, we
will want to also get organized within the large groups or regional level.

In Service,
