Our hearts reach out to those in New Orleans and the surrounding areas. In wake of Hurricane Katrina thousands of residents of the south are stranded and without necessities. Many await food and medicine. As help arrives people are desperate for recourse.
Many Las Vegans have opened their hearts and homes. Victims have been allowed to stay in homes and hotels and have received money and food from many. Military and civilian workers have been dispatched to provide additional aid.
