Helping Evacuees in McComb, MIssissippi

From Scrutiny Hooligans:

Scrutiny Hooligan Cindy Lou Who is volunteering with the Red Cross in McComb, Mississippi. She's a Licensed Professional Counselor with excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to levelhead her way through any situation. She called tonight to update us on the relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Here are a few things I learned:

- Just south of McComb 8,000 evacuees are being housed in an old cattle warehouse. Cindy Lou busied herself handing out Red Cross checks ($2,000) to the afflicted.

- There is no FEMA. Nowhere. Cindy Lou has seen one FEMA rep who came through the cattle warehouse to see if the FEMA phone number was posted.
