<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">A powerful storm, possibly a tornado, rolled FEMA trailers and tore apart businesses in New Orleans today, heaping more misery on neighborhoods still recovering from Hurricane Katrina. An 85-year-old woman who had nearly finished remodeling her hurricane-damaged home died in the storm.</td>

SO far they are saying it definitely was a tornado. My heart goes out to the family of the woman who died -- I think her death would have most definitely been prevented if she wasn't in a FEMA trailer. Also - the firestation - which was being housed in a FEMA trailer - flipped over and several firefighters were sent to the hospital with injuries.<br><br>
On a somewhat up note - there was a hotel that was pretty much destroyed. Walls and roof caved in - but no reported deaths. When they showed the line of people waiting outside from the hotel and I saw the number of children I sighed a sigh of relief.
