Galveston, Texas

Pretty major damage to this city on the Gulf Coast from Hurricane Ike. This slide show is an interesting look at what makes this city.

News of the recovery.

It seems like the city is a little stressed and not able to leverage the internet as well as it might.

The city's resources are "stretched to the max," and it could be a month before electricity is restored. The cleanup will be massive, he said, and the city is "unsafe." see CNN

California seems a little more adept at using the web as an emergency response tool, such as they did during the San Diego and L.A. fires.
