St. Bernard

They've finally shown some video from St. Bernard Parish, and it's worse than Orleans. Some houses are completely submerged, and others have water literally to the top of the roof.

Rep. Charlie Melancon is being interviewed--he's describing the scene--as I noted below, reports say over one hundred people died at Chalmette Boat Slip, waiting to be rescued. Melancon is pointing out what's obvious to anyone looking at the video: you can't drive a vehicle to St. Bernard Parish. All the roads are under water--there, and at Belle Chase (in Plaquemines Parish).
