The Katrina Information Network, developed by Washington-based Flying Colors Broadcasts, will be available to Dish customers free while the Gulf Coast is rebuilding.

The channel broadcasts updates from relief agencies as well as key information such as telephone numbers and a survivors' list, EchoStar said.

EchoStar also is working with Clear Channel Communications Inc. to transmit that company's FM radio signals from Baton Rouge, La., to New Orleans.

EchoStar Communications, based in suburban Englewood, is the nation's second-largest satellite television provider.

And now Rita, just moved into the category of Hurricane. Prediction of landfall Friday in Louisiana or Saturday in Texas.
Better fill yer tanks up then before they hike the price again

According to sources, Rita is now approximately four times the size (in terms of energy stored) as Katrina.

Its the third worst hurricane that has been observed since records began.

Houston space centre has been evacuated and all communication to the ISS has been transferred over to the Russians.

If I was in Galveston, I would be getting the Ned Kellys onto the hoss.
