Jean Richard, et all,
You may want to have the lady check in with Continental Airlines (based in Houston)
or 1-800-523-FARE (1-800-523-3273)
I heard on the radio today, there is a bit online, that Continental may
donate some tickets, or discount fare-pricing for folks affected by the
storm, who can prove by ID they are from the region.
It maybe worth a phone call to see if she qualifies for a plane trip
Depending on the region the lady in waiting in, someone coming to get
her may not be allowed into the region due to roads and power being out;
don't know about Sulphur, LA.
But, Continental maybe an option for those trying to get home.
Regards, Hillary / Stargate
