Reconstruction after Katrina - Gen. Records

City's historical documents in peril as efforts to rescue some of the earliest records were thwarted. Trucks were turned away.
I know that saving lives is the more important task at hand, however, what will happen to the vitual Genealogy gold mind lying in damp and mildewed quarters over the next one to six months?

This could be the modern day 'court house fire' syndrome - with losses to millions of (original) records not yet microfilmed. Without access to the records, even the simplest of 'land sales' may not be possible.
