Governor surveys damage in Southwest Louisiana.

It's smaller in scope, but just as severe as New Orleans, if not more so.
-- Gov. Kathleen Blanco's hurricane recovery team Wednesday got a first-hand look at some of the utter devastation caused by Hurricane Rita.

During a walking tour of Cameron -- ground zero for Rita damages -- officials saw crumpled homes, businesses and schools.

"I don't know if there are any homes in Cameron that are salvageable," said Scott Trahan, president of the Cameron Parish Police Jury.

Members of the Louisiana recovery authority who took part in the tour were almost speechless.
