that was on the 31st though.* * Are you sure they are letting regular people volunteer there?
This is before Mayor Bill White Opened up the George R Brown and Reliant Areana to them. The fire marshall stopped the people from coming into the astrodome being a fire hazard. Now they need the volunteers

Re: Astrodome!!!!!!

Story from someone who was there last night:
I wanted to share my experience working inside the Astrodome last night. The news is getting some of it right, but they're outside, in a distant parking lot. Once inside the Dome, it's a completely different story.

Bryan and I were watching tv last night, when the show was interrupted w/ breaking news. The Astrodome was at capacity and the 40 buses filled w/ refugees were being turned away. Only 8,000 were inside--weren't we prepared for 25,000? KTRK (ABC 13) got an interview w/ a Red Cross official inside the Dome. They were turning buses away b/c they didn't have enough volunteers. (For the past 2 days, we've been repeatedly told to NOT come, they had enough volunteers).

Bryan lives just one block from the Dome, so we head over and were immediately welcomed as volunteers. (???)
I don't know where to begin, how to describe what we saw last night. It's not total chaos inside, but about 2 steps from it. The smell meets you before you walk through the doors. Besides a name tag, there was little volunteer organization. 'Help wherever you can' was the order.

We tried bringing food down from the upper levels, but made it back with very little. Everywhere people would stop us asking for the food, water, a cot, a blanket, clothes, phone...everything.

There was little food: only Doritos, some ham sandwiches and a little fruit.
There was LITTLE clothing. We distributed what we had, but quickly ran out. People are walking around in clothing soaked in sewage. Many don't have shirts or shoes.

There is a medical triage station. Many people needed medical care. Bryan came across a refugee leaning against a rail, close to passing out. Bryan discovered he was a schizophrenic w/ a heart condition and hadn't had his medication in 5 days.

There is a Lost Children section for kids who are alone and have been separated from their families.
There was a good police presence. They did a great job of fanning out over the Dome. I was not concerned about safety.
My high school football team won the State Championship on that Dome field.
Today, that field is covered w/ thousands of ppl desperate for just a clean pair of socks.
I'd like to urge anyone who receives this email to please help out in some way...and there are many ways you can.
I understand they are now accepting volunteers at the Dome. Enter at McNee, just off of Kirby. I DO NOT recommend any women go down there. If you do, please go with another man. Bryan and I did not separate last night. Right now, ppl are in OK spirits, but as the days go by, I think the unrest will become a little more unstable and unsafe.

Supplies are needed. I was shocked--we ran out of food, clothing, blankets...everything.
MOST WANTED ITEMS:

Men's Clothing!!! Everyone just wants a plain, Hanes t-shirt and some shorts.
Women's clothing--especially larger sizes. Plain t-shirt and jeans or shorts.
Everyone was begging for some slippers or flip flops. (the only shoes that were donated were high heels)
SOCKS! (ppl were pleading for just some socks)
Underwear
Summer clothing (the only things we had last night were heavy sweaters, jackets and turtlenecks)
Blankets
All hygiene items are greatly needed also. (toothpaste, diapers, soap, etc)
Your prayers


Sorry for such the lengthy email. It was actually therapeutic for me to write this out.
Take care.
