Blogs Monitoring Progress After Katrina
- MetroBlogging — a number of bloggers are providing regular “real-life” updates from the perspective of those who are living through the changes in New Orleans.
- 100 Days Of Blogging — an archive of blog posts from reporters who went to places and conveyed stories that weren’t otherwise being told.
- Nola U.S. — regular updates on how things are progressing from New Orleans.
At Snopes various “facts” and “rumors” about Hurricane Katrina are either validated or debunked.
As a homeowner, I primarily write about weather safety tips that everyone should know in order to protect their home and family during major weather events. I especially like to share seasonal "outside the box" ideas that most wouldn't think of in the Spring, Summer, Winter, and Fall. The weather events I've personally experienced include: Hurricanes (while living in Florida), Tornadoes (while living in Indiana, Texas, and Tennessee), Earthquakes (while visiting California), Blizzards (while living in New York and Indiana), and Flooding (while living in Tennessee).
