Thanks Maria & Dorothy. Yes it is wonderful that people & groups come to this area to help. I heard on the news today that a group from Alabama went to Madisonville to help. Madisonville has the wooden boat festival coming up Oct 13 so they have lots to do to get ready for that.

So sad .... I know it's hard photojournalism, Charlotte, but it's kind of you to show the loss, so people will be aware of the need for support in these small communities. Portlight is doing a wonderful job, as always!! Portlight WunderPhotos

Thanks Arlene, Katy & Fate Yanagee. My heart also goes out to these people. I find it hard to drive around & take those pictures and if there is someone out working I don't get my camera out. Instead I want to go up to them to tell them I am sorry & help them cleanup.

I have to pass these places to get my water/sunset pics so I have not felt like taking those shots lately. The drive to Manchac is also heartbreaking because not only do you see the homes damaged you smell the animals that drowned.

In this shot you can see the boards in the floor and through the totally empty house.

As Arlene says, it's heartbreaking. I see a lot of broken hearts here among the broken possessions.

The high water in Minot lasted for three weeks and then slowly went down so it did a lot of damage. Many homes had to be completely demolished and others were just left to rot. Such a sad situation, some people up there won't be in their homes this year yet, as contractors are so busy and hard to come by. Heartbreaking that's for sure.
