Da big cleanup

The NRDC is finding high levels of toxic mold in New Orleans' homes and air, and is finding high levels of arsenic in the sediment, particularly in N.O. East, where most of the floodwater came from the Gulf via the Miss. River Gulf Outlet, a/k/a "Mr. Go." I'm quite allergic to mold, so it's a good thing I live on the Northshore, where I'm at least several miles removed from houses with mold damage.

I've wondered about the health risks in the aftermath. It seems it would be impossible to get the mold/bacteria under control.I wonder how many have become ill because of it.

Maybe the toxic chemicals will eventually kill the mold and bacteria.r
