I am trying to locate Mary Smith. She and her father, who is disabled, were in her home in New Orleans East in the Kingswood subdivision. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Her daughters are safe and very concerned. Thank you!

I WOULD LIKE TO RELAY THIS REPORT FOR ANY INTERNATIONAL MEMBERS WHO MAY BE READING.
I have just been watching more terrible news reports on the TV here. But - one in particular caught my attention. They interviewed a lot of people who were taking refuge in New Orleans in one of the old, city apartments about 5 storeys up. The streets were dry, and they were all safe. They had water - for now - as the former owner had filled every receptacle with water before the storm hit. They are lucky.
I tell you this because ONE OF THEM HAD A SCOTTISH ACCENT.
She was with her husband - possibly on their honeymoon or holiday.
If you know through the media or through your own contacts of a Scottish family who are desperately wanting to know if there are any Scots surviving over here - there are. There is a Scottish couple safe in a New Orleans flat. She sounded like she may have been from the Fife area - although I'm not entirely sure. She had freckles on her shoulders and longish, dark brown hair. She appeared fairly slim and perhaps anywhere from her late 20's to late 30's.
Maybe this info will make life easier for someone over there. Relay it if you can. The lady mentioned, in tears, that they were so terribly worried because nobody at home knew they were safe.
