ROOFTOP RESCUE While members of the FEMA Urban Search and Rescue team help a man from his rooftop in the Lakeview section of New Orleans, he tells of his dreadful night hearing cries of help throughout the neighborhood. As the tream motored through the flooded neighborhood, we shut off the engines periodically. "Hello," they shouted, then drifted quietly while praying for a reply. Often a response would ring out, sending us racing around the block only to find another boat of rescuers answering our call.
