ATTENTION - Please pass on

As I've stated before, I'm a government worker. Got the following information through official channels this afternoon. You don't have to read between the lines to have a shiver go right up your spine. This comes straight from the California Office of Emergency Services

Subject: Rescue Line for Victims

State OES has learned that trapped victims on the Gulf Coast are calling family, friends, loved-ones, or anyone they can get a call out to in California asking for someone to rescue them. These requests need to go immediately to the US Coast Guard's Rescue Line at 800-323-7233 and immediate assistance will be sent.

Please distribute this information as widely as possible.

Thank you.


Eric Lamoureux
Chief, Office of Public Information
California Governor's Office of Emergency Services

My thanks to Jody who got my email earlier and has already posted this on her blog, too.
