HELP NEEDED - Another one of our boating friends needs help. I have several boxes of supplies to go to or around Mandeville LA to Brian Normand of Normand Racing but we need a "Ship To" address that he can drive and pick up the supplies. I have clothes, batteries, medicine and etc for Brian and his family but we need somewhere (a desination other than a P.O Box) to ship this material to so he can pick it up. Anyone that has a relative or friend or a contact nearby that can recieve a UPS shipment (home or business) would be really helpful. Mandeville is approximately 50 miles north of New Orleans.

This site and its members never ceases to amaze us. You guys are all great people. Everyone at TMP is accounted for and all are OK. Three of them lost everything. ( Eddie, Chris, and Johnny). Their houses are total losses as well as thier vehicles, tools , etc. We took about ten feet of water in the shop. All of our tools, machines, engine parts, computers, etc are a total loss. The boats all are OK with minimal damage. All the Nortechs are good. Our freightliner tow truck is a total loss. We are working on securing housing for all of our employees, as well as a new facility in Baton Rouge. We hope to be up and running in a few weeks. We have lost our entire client list, so if anyone needs anything, please call us or email at [email protected] or [email protected] .net. Anyone in need of quality rigging, custom engines, rebuilds or service, please let us know, as most of our existing clients have lost everything. Again, we cannot express our appreciation for everyone's gratitude and support throughout our rebuilding process. If we can ever return it, please let us know.

I spoke with Jeff last night. He and his family are OK. His house took alot of water, but is still standing.

Flying our first of hopefully many Angel Flight missions into Fairhope Municipal Airport in Alabama on Friday.
It may turn into a weekly thing. If it does I'll be taking special orders as long as the special orders don't weigh too much...
Be well,
Hans

I've mostly just read the post's on the site and learned from you all. But it's great to know this is such a great group of folks. I made it out with my truck, boat and some clothes. The house is under water and everything inside is a loss, but I'm thankful my losses can all be replaced at some point and that I have family in Houston to stay with.
My thoughts and prayers go out to those who lost family members in this storm.

taken over. The kitchen roof fell, the carport

Sam Spade - Michael. Thanks to you, Brian Normand and his family will be able to function somewhat a little bit more comfortable because of you helping us out. I really appreciate it and so does Brian and family.
I recieved many other phone calls from the OSO family members willing to help out and contribute.... THANK YOU ALL!!
Now lets cross our fingers that the shipment arrives safely tomorrow.
Thanks again!
Dan Dillon
