One Million Homeless
News story that predicts the hurrican could leave one million homeless in New Orleans.
Quote from article ""We're talking about in essence having â€” in the continental United States â€” having a refugee camp of a million people," van Heerden said."
Another quote from the article: "In a few days, van Heerden predicts, emergency management officials are going to be wondering how to handle a giant stagnant pond contaminated with building debris, coffins, sewage and other hazardous materials.
"We're talking about an incredible environmental disaster," van Heerden said."
I know this is the least of the worries but the 2006 ALA Conference was scheduled for New Orleans. With the predictions that I am reading in the article I wonder if the conference will still happen in New Orleans.
