in the Pennsylvania Oil Region Authorities in New Orleans find far fewer bodies than feared ATmiT TTt A A i NEW ORLEANS AP Alarming predictions of as many as 10000 dead in New Orleans may have been greatly exaggerated with authorities saying Friday that the first streetbystreet sweep of the swamped city revealed far fewer corpses than feared Some of the catastrophic deaths that some people predicted may not have occurred said Col Terry Ebbert the citys homeland security chief He declined to give a revised esti mate But he added Numbers so far are relatively minor as compared to the dire projections of 10000 The encouraging news came as authorities officially shifted most of their attention to counting and removing the dead after spending days cajoling per suading and all but strongarming the living into leaving the city because of the danger of fires and disease from the fetid Hood waters Ever since Hurricane Katrina struck Aug 29 residents rescuers and cadaver sniffing dogs have found bodies floating in the waters trapped in attics or left lying on broken highways Some were dropped offat hospital doorsteps or left slumped in wheelchairs out in the open Mayor Ray Nagin suggested last week end that it wouldnt be unreasonable to have 10000 dead and authorities ordered 25000 body bags But soldiers who had been brought in over the past few days to help in the search were not seeing that kind of toll Theres nothing at all in the magni tude we anticipated said Maj Gen Bill Caldwell commander of the Armys 82nd Airborne Division Ebbert said the search for the dead will be done systematically blockby block with dignity and with no news media allowed to follow along You can imagine sitting in Houston and watching somebody removed from your parents property We dont think thafs proper he said Over the past few days police and sol diers trying to rescue the living marked houses where corpses were found or NEW ORLEANS Recovery offi cials in protective suits
