It's a disaster like this that makes me wish that I had a useful skill like masonry or roofing or electrical; or even something yucky like exterminating rats or reds ants or water mocassins. Such delightful creatures will be ruling the Gulf Coast when the waters recede.
If anyone knows of a group of people with the above skills who are volunteering their services down South, please post their info here. Such a group could certainly use support.
