Wooley, who has visited the region four times since Katrina struck on Aug. 29, said he had not seen many salvagable homes among the 33,000 residences scheduled for inspection next week. Officials have estimated that at least 80 percent of the homes in St. Bernard Parish will have to be razed. Most homes in southern Plaquemines Parish were reduced to concrete slabs by Katrina.

So sad. This means that 26,400 families have lost everything in that parish. There's just nothing you can say about misery on that scale.
