It sounds like CNN’s Jeanne Meserve is still in shock. She said this on the network on Wednesday:

“On the way out of New Orleans, it looked like the dust bowl. You’ve seen the pictures of the dust bowl, of people piled onto the backs of tracks and moving their lives. That’s what is happening here. It’s extraordinary to witness.

I truly believe that apart from 9/11 this is one of the most significant events that has ever hit this country. Anybody who tells you this disaster is going to be rectified in a matter of months hasn’t seen the situation.”

When Meserve saw Air Force One overhead, “that was a powerful image to us because we’ve been out of communication, unaware really of what’s happening in the outside world. This was a sign that you’ve heard, that you’ve heard and listened.”
