Hmm, maybe we can't really help too much in the afflicted areas...but what
about the likely event the FEMA / Red Cross set up "Tent Cities" and
temporary refuge camps?  All of these people have to go somewhere and from
what I have been reading, I don't think that they're going to lodge in a
hotel somewhere for a few months.

If anyone knows if there are any plans with Tent Cities...they're perfect
candidates for some wireless help.

There is no one to serve internet to in New Orleans but FEMA and the work crews and I am sure that the Feds have satellite set up. New Orleans has been issued orders for COMPLETE evacuation. They are moving all the folks out of the shelters to higher ground (refugee camps) North of New Orleans City limits. It will be many months before anyone will be allowed back into New Orleans. Water is still pouring into town as we speak due to levee breaches and is expected to have 9' of water downtown before it quits coming across the levee. A soup bowl cant hold but so much soup.
