KATRINA: Not So Super?

I haven't been hurricane-blogging, but the one thing I've been watching is New Orleans' decision to house 9,000 people in the Superdome. I hope that's the right move, because if it's not, it could wind up being one of the biggest mistakes in the history of disaster relief. I was initially worried when parts of the roof peeled off; now word comes that things are not going so well in the aftermath of massive post-storm flooding:

With water rising perilously inside the Superdome, [Louisiana Governor Kathleen] Blanco said the tens of thousands of refugees now huddled there and other shelters in New Orleans would have to be evacuated.

For now, all the rest of us can do is hope and pray.

UPDATE: But if you want to do something more concrete, Glenn has a list of places to donate.
