Katrina stats so far

--posted by Tony Garcia on 9/06/2005

From Breit Bart
As of 1 PM Eastern today the stats regarding rescue efforts in New Orleans are:
Rescues performed 32,000
Shelters 559
People housed in shelters 182,000
FEMA responders 7,000
U.S. Coast Guard personnel 4,000
National Guard personnel 43,000
Active Duty Military 15,000
MREs provided (meals) 11.3 million
Water provided (liters) 18 million

For those of you who think the Feds are not moving fast enough breakdown the "Resues performed number". The levees broke at about 1PM last Monday...8 days ago. Let's assume that the rescue efforts did not even start until 1PM last Tuesday. That is still more than 3 people per minute that were rescued.

The MREs spread over the 182,000 people in shelters breaks down to 8 meals per day...starting the feedings at 1PM last Tuesday. We know they started later.

Sounds like a pretty damn good response once the Federal Government decided the panic-stricken Mayor and Governor could not do anything right.
