Received an email from Master Chief Jennings, Command Master Chief for Atlantic Area: the Coast Guard has a few people -- members and dependents -- unaccounted for following the evacuations for Katrina. The service is trying to get an accurate handle on who's okay and who remains unaccounted for. If you've heard from someone from the impacted area of D8 have them (or if you are someone from the impacted area of D8, then you) contact ISC St. Louis at 314-539-3900, extensions 2337/2338/2340.
Please, please, please, do not use this number for any other purpose. This isn't the contact CG operations number or the number for someone to find out if their cousin Joe is okay (whether or not Joe is in the Coast Guard).
