ABC News has breaking news that a New Orleans prison has had a riot and attempted escape and the inmates have taken hostages including women and children. The commissioner of the prison brought his family there during the hurricane to be safe and now he, his wife, and 4 children are some of the hostages.
They are also reporting shootings, carjackings, and looting outside of the superdome!
It's may be a very long and violent night in New Orleans!
Yes, and I was deeply terrified this morning when I heard that armed looters were trying to brake into a hospital! I'm terrified for the patients in there! As it is, I read this morning some nurses are ventilating patients manually - this is the last thing they need!
