Just got off the phone with Jeff.

He has just crossed the Texas State line as I type, heading to Austin. He is about 4 1/2 hours away from his destination. Jeff reports his family and girlfriend's family made it out OK, but their homes and town are gone, completely gone. He relayed eyewitness stories of massive casualties just in his town. I will not post the gory details he relayed to me here. The broadcasters have not reported this news yet. Jeff used to live inbetween New Orleans and Gulfport.

Jeff sounded ok and a little upbeat and he has a plan. He and his lady friend will relocate to Austin for employment and school. He also said "THANKS" to his SBS family here. He also said he would call if he needed anything and to give updates.

This is a horrible situation. I wish there was something I could do over and above making a monetary donation. Jeff, I am glad to hear you and your closest are safe and my best goes to you all. –BAM

Jeff,

You and your loved ones (not to mention the people of the gulf coast) are in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this ordeal. I am glad to hear that you, your family, your girlfriend are all ok, that is the most important thing. Take care, good luck in Austin.

Jeff,

Im glad you and the family are OK. I cant imagine the pain and desolation you all have had to endure, just know that as SBS we are more than "some satellite radio message board" we are a community of people who care for each other, and we all have been thinking about your wellbeing and safety.

My wife and i went to New Orleans for our honeymoon, and whenever we saw a big storm approaching the gulf, we always thought of New Orleans and what a great place it was, unfortunately our fears have been realized, and our despair i know in no ways approaches yours.

Take care, and we will continue to pray/donate/worry about the gulf states.

Jeff,

You don't know how relieved I was to hear you and your family were ok. It was also great to hear your voice today and hear of your ordeal. Take care of yourself and your family and let me know if there is any way I can help during this time of need. Best of luck in getting back on your feet in Austin!

Sirius_Rich touched on some of the things that Jeff went through but thought I would add to that. He and his family were trapped in their house with the storm surge heading straight for their house. They ended up with 5 feet of water in the house (even though they are 27 feet above sea level) and they made there way into the attic for shelter. He said Bay St. Louis is devastated, and looks like a nuclear bomb went off wiping out the city. Many people are walking around like zombies with no place to go. He said it wasn't until today that the army showed up to help. He believes there are probably 1000 people dead in his city alone.

Jeff,
So glad to to hear that you and your family are ok. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and all the folks in the gulf coast region. Your SBS family cares about you and the rest of the SBS family. Let us know if there is anything that we can do.

Glad you are ok.

George

Yeah....As soon as I realized how bad it really is down there I was thinking of TULANE Jeff. I knew he musta been in the area. REAL glad to hear you are OK and take care of your family business. We all look forward to the day of your return.

I spent the whole day watching today and I am real sad. It's a very sad day for the USA.

Peace to Tulane Jeff and all of our other hurricane area board folk.

Here's to New Orleans - A beautiful city.

Considering where Jeff and his family were hunkered down they are truly blessed to still be alive. I am truly greatful that you and your family got out though your home was destroyed. Bay St. Louis was so beautiful when I was there just this past Thursday and Friday. It just blows me away to know that most of it is gone now. I have no doubt there are 1000's dead from this hurricane. Keep us posted, God Bless!
