Maybe they died from broken hearts?
NEW ORLEANS At least 147 Louisiana residents died in other states after Hurricane Katrina, or just before the storm. Included in those are a baby who lived less than an hour after her birth in Pennsylvania and a 100-year-old New Orleans woman who died in North Carolina.
We have had at least 2 deaths here in Columbia SC (there are over 500 forced evacs here, and over 5500 self evacs in the Columbia area alone): neither related to the storm, per se, just very old and/or sick before the storm. I am surprised that we have had no suicides. Mental Health is a real problem here among those that have no place to return to in the Gulf States.Post a Comment
