17. That's the project death toll form mythical Hurricane Pam
At least, I think it was called Pam. It was a diaster simulation exercise, and was the projected death toll for The Big One in New Orleans.

That's where that came from. Nagin and other's weren't just pulling that number out of the air. They were saying, it could be as high as the projection.

I think it may be very, very high.

I'm suspicious that someone won't run down every single listed missing person.

The problem with FEMA is they register households (one beneficiary per), not individuals.

I think that the death toll is higher than 9-11. And the Admin will make everything in there power to never let that get into the public domain.
