30 people die in 1 apartment complex

FOXNews.com - U.S. & World - Governor: Evacuate New Orleans Governments love to issue evacuation orders, but when a class 5 hurricane is bearing down on you, it might be a good idea to listen to them.
The biggest known cluster of deaths was at the Quiet Water Beach apartments in Biloxi, a red-brick beachfront complex of about 100 units. Harrison County, Miss., emergency operations center spokesman Jim Pollard said about 30 people died there.
The building is gone. Some people escaped when it started to collapse; others did not.

In other Katrina news:

80% of New Orleans is under water, and the levees are not yet repaired.

The Superdome is filling with water, and the people who were evacuated there need to be evacuated someplace else.
