Katrina Missing Persons Board


NowPublic.com is providing a public service for those affected by Hurricane Katrina.  We have set up a website that lets people send in photographs of those who go missing during the storm.  We are asking others to contribute by posting a link to tool on their sites.   Your assistance in this effort is greatly appreciated. 

The Link to the site is here:
