6644 Still Missing After Katrina

USA Today reports that 6644 are still missing in the Gulf area post-Katrina. Many will likely be acoounted for however.....
However, Pasqualini says those counting the victims are particularly concerned about an estimated 1,300 unaccounted-for people who lived in areas that were heavily damaged by Katrina, or who were disabled at the time the storm hit. The fact that authorities haven't been able to determine what happened to them suggests that the death toll from Katrina could climb significantly.

It makes one wonder how many dead may remain in the Lower 9th Ward and elsewhere in the Gulf.
