Katrina Help and Info


Xeni just posted some information on Boing Boing on how the tech community can help with the Katrina disaster.

– Earthlink has launched HurricaneHelp to “help connect Hurricane Katrina victims with their friends and family”.

Metroblogging New Orleans has been providing excellent hurricane recover coverage all week long.

craigslist new orleans is another great resource for victims of Katrina, especially their community, lost & found and housing forums.

– Technorati has created a special page for Hurricane Katrina coverage.

The Interdictor is a Survival of New Orleans blog (via Dan Gillmor) . They have also setup an irc channel: irc.freenode.net#interdictor

– Of course donations can always be made directly through the Red Cross.
