Massive federal response

Of course, the federal response to Hurricane Katrina is huge. The Navy is moving ships. The Air Force and Army and Coast Guard and Marine Corps has helos flying right now. And more and more.

Of note to some readers is this tidbit:
The Coast Guard, whose crews have been assisting in the rescue of people stranded by high water in the New Orleans area, is recalling 550 reservists to assist in the relief effort.
Scuttle right now is that this is 500 enlisted members and 50 officers... all likely coming from the Eighth District.

More to follow.
