Subject: [Ansteorra] Hurricane report from Nomaan
I just returned from Waveland, Mississippi where I was helping run the
Amateur Radio Emergency Services communication center.
When I wasn't in the comm center, I was helping with food and clothing
For those of you who want to donate items, I would suggest that you stick to
canned goods, cleaning supplies and NEW clothing with the tags still on
The distribution centers dont have the manpower to sort used clothes and the
used clothing arriving in the areas are being thrown into large piles that
may or may not ever get to those that need them
One other item that you might consider sending is heavy laboratory quality
rubber gloves. Body recovery is an ongoing issue and FEMA isn't getting the
supplies the recovery crews need to them.
I'll be going back to the disaster area in a few days and will try to post
some pictures for those interested.
