Jean Richard, et all, 
You may want to have the lady check in with Continental Airlines (based in Houston)
at: http://www.continental.com/onepass/oDonateMiles.asp
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 
to Chicago.  

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
