St. Bernard - having it rough, but getting better

8:36 A.M. - St. Bernard Parish President Henry “Junior” Rodriguez: The water level is going down 12 inches every day. I don’t think there is one home that is inhabitable right now, and no businesses are open. We still haven’t got our streets cleaned yet. We’re trying to get this place cleaned up enough so people can come back and check out their homes and maybe get a little closure.
8:33 A.M. - Rodriguez: We’re getting excellent help from the govt. now. FEMA, National Guard, Coast Guard, they’re all down heRodrre. It’s just a slow progression. Our tax base is gone, and we’re probably in worse shape than New Orleans, because almost all our homes have been destroyed.
8:30 A.M. - Rodriguez: I haven't seen anybody from Entergy yet.
