"Most likely, thousands" may be dead

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

The numbers of dead are going to be astounding:

The mayor said Wednesday that Katrina probably killed thousands of people in New Orleans - an estimate that, if accurate, would make the storm by far the nation's deadliest hurricane in more than a century.

``We know there is a significant number of dead bodies in the water,'' and other people dead in attics, Mayor Ray Nagin said. Asked how many, he said: ``Minimum, hundreds. Most likely, thousands.''
