1000th home gutted in St. Bernard Parish
St. Bernard Parish officials gathered this afternoon at a home in Chalmette to mark the 1000th home gutted since Hurricane Katrina swamped the parish.
The 1 p.m. event was held at 2425 Judy Drive. Countless teams of volunteers have converged on the parish since the Aug. 29 storm, to gut houses and help residents get back on their feet.
But parish officials worry that with limited housing available to the volunteers the number of people willing to help with the work will dwindle.
i wonder why, hmmm?
