Bush gets close look at Rita’s damage
LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — President Bush flew over the largely obliterated Louisiana town of Cameron and circled an offshore oil rig Tuesday in his first up-close look at the devastation that Hurricane Rita brought to the Gulf Coast’s oil producing and refining communities.
“This area’s hurting," Bush said before an hour-long helicopter tour over the debris-strewn communities along the Texas-Louisiana border where Rita blew ashore. “I saw firsthand how it’s hurting.”
Bush saw flattened and flooded homes, hundreds of downed trees, extensive roof damage and dozens of stranded and wandering cows. He flew over utility towers that had been knocked over, a Blockbuster video store with windows knocked into the parking lot, a power company worker making repairs and a river-boat washed halfway up onto muddy ground.
It was Bush’s seventh visit to the Gulf in the aftermath of the two hurricanes that brought widespread damage here in less than a month, but it was his first personal look at the area hit by Rita.
“I understand there’s a lot of frustrations,” the president said in Lake Charles. “People who are scattered around want to come back and see their homes. They want to come back to the communities they love. But it’s very important for them to understand that now’s not tile time to come back.”
He said that sewers needed to be repaired and clean
drinking water assured before people returned.
Bush stood with Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco who said the oil and gas industry was dependent on “a healthy Louisiana.” Bush, a former oilman, patted her sympathetically on the back.
“Some things worked right this time,” Blanco said, comparing what happened with Rita with the disaster of Hurricane Katrina. “We learned a lot of lessons from our previous experience with Katrina. Our communications network stayed up.”
Bush and Blanco did not respond to a reporter’s shouted question about charges in Washington by former FEMA Director Michael Brown blaming others — particularly Blanco and New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin — for most government failures in responding to Katrina.
The tour started over Beaumont, where the president flew above a fkxided oil refinery and police roadblocks set up to keep residents out of town. Three trucks hauling trailer homes brought new housing to the evacuated city.AID ___

Governor says help is on the way
Texas as part of a goal to restore power to critical services — fire, police, hospitals—within a week. There are plans for cruise ships to provide power, and trains are bringing fuel to the area.
Nine base camps throughout the affected area were established as staging areas for energy workers so that they can work around-the-clock on essential tasks, including getting power lines back up and cleaning up brush, Perry said.
Grtiz said he was more hopeful about aid after spending about 30 minutes with the governor. He warned residents to stay away until the city got back on its feet.
“If residents come in now, they just compound the problem. We love our people in Port Arthur, but we can’t have them come in," he said.
Water and sewer systems weren’t expected to function until more generators arrived to bring them back on line. It could take up to a month to get electricity restored to the estimated 476,000 customers in the region.
About 2,000 residents who stayed through the storm were advised to find other places to live until utility services are restored. Authorities are providing transportation to shelters to those who need it.
In a neighborhood not far from a grocery store that reeked of rotten food, three FEMA semitrailers delivered ice, ready-to-eat meals and water late Tuesday afternoon.
Lee Smith, 50, and David Lee Adams, 49, packed their car with supplies to survive a few more days at their home.
“Without these trucks here, I don’t think we would have made it," Smith said. “I’ve nev
er left before. I thought it wouldn’t be too bad. The good Lord spared us.”
Houses in the neighborhood were mostly intact, although roofs had lost many of their shingles and yards were strewn with tree limbs. Windows in the grocery store were broken, and its sign was destroyed.
In Beaumont, a family of nine has been stuck in a hotel since the day before the storm hit They left their home in Sulphur, La., in hopes of getting to Shreveport, La., but traffic was gridJocked so they headed for Beaumont, where their son manages the hotel.
They have no running water or electricity. They managed to get a generator and they hooked up a couple of fans and a lamp to it.
“We’re lucky,” said Claudia Church, 68. “It’s not been too bad. The main thing people are waiting for is gas, and there ain’t any.”
She said authorities had stopped by to check on them and deliver prepackaged meals, ice and water, but she has heard they won’t be able to go home for a month. “That’s what we’ve heard. I hope not," she said.
Meanwhile in Orange, a steady stream of more than IOO cars and trucks snaked outside a shopping strip hammered by Hurricane Rita for supplies of food, water and ice organized by the Compassion Alliance, a Nixa, Mo.-based private disaster assistance group also helped by church organizations and FEMA
In temperatures near IOO degrees, Texas National Guard troops loaded the vehicles with as many items they could hold
“They’re so happy to see us,” said Ion Manderscheid, with the Compassion Alliance. The group, which also assisted Katrina victims in Biloxi, Miss., showed up two days ago with three semi-truck trailers filled with food and water and ice and has been running nonstop since.
