Water System Repairs Could Take Months

A National Guard engineer says it will be at least three months before New Orleans' public water system is fully operational. Running water has been restored to some homes, but it's mostly untreated.

Forty bodies were pulled from a flooded-out hospital Monday. One hospital official says at least a few of the elderly patients were dead before the storm.

Southeast of New Orleans, residents have received disheartening news. A councilman in St. Bernard Parish says no one should expect to live in the parish again before next summer. Before katrina, its population was 66-thousand. The Federal Emergency Management Agency is expecting to house thousands of hurricane survivors in temporary cities made up of trailer homes. Most would be in Louisiana.

New Orleans' Louis Armstrong International Airport marks a significant milestone today. A limited number of passenger flights will resume. An airport spokesman says it's a symbolic move but practical too, since it's the largest airport in the state.
