Storm blogs offer Katrina insight
BBC News [UK]

The web has once again proved its worth as a news source as blogs offered a vivid description of the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina. As the storm carved a path through southern US, weblogs provided first-hand accounts of those affected. Mainstream media outlets in New Orleans found the web an invaluable asset as their offices were flooded. Web tracking firm Technorati reported that seven of the top 10 search terms were hurricane-related on Tuesday. According to internet measurement firm Keynote Systems, some websites were unable to cope with demand for Katrina-related news.

Blogs from the Inside

The convention center is next to the Mississippi River. Many people who are sleeping there feel that a boat is going to come and get them. Or they think a bus is going to come. But no buses have come. No boats have come. They think water is going come. No water has come. And they have no food.

As we drove by, people screamed out to us -- "Do you have water? Do you have food? Do you have any information for us?"

We had none of those.

Probably the most disturbing thing is that people at the convention center are starting to pass away and there is simply nothing to do with their bodies. There is nowhere to put them. There is no one who can do anything with them. This is making everybody very, very upset.
