    No but according to several of the cops I talked to back home, they were hold up in the Library off second street at the time the storm hit, our public saftety buildings are all pre-fab (Central Fire, North Street, and Second St Police), as the water approached, they used their service weapons to gain exit thru the windows, and go to the roof

    I agree. they are just police cars and can be replaced. You cannot and never will replace life, courage, honor, and bravery. I too hope a offcer was not in these cars at the time it was swept off.

    that is the gayest comment i have ever seen on the internet. How about "Boy, I hope there was no one driving those when they got swept away like that"

    The Steethawk light bar is no big loss, but too bad about the rest of the car.

    They patched some of our tires while our officers were down there... This is the county next to us... so we know most of the officers....

    This U.S. 90 at the Hard Rock Hotel looking west. The locals officals were worried about this guitar before Katrina coming ashore. It's odd what Mother Nature can do. The Hard Rock hotel was about to open until Katrina came a through. Just pass the guitar is the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino. The storms surge was up the interstate 110 over pass at U.S. 90 just pass the Beau Rivage.
    These pictures are real sobering
