 The ceremony came as Hurricane Katrina left Americans once again struggling with a catastrophe that caught the nation unprepared and left citizens dead and grieving."Right now, we want to make sure that we're taking care of the people that are alive, and that we are treating them with dignity and respect."When asked if the assistance his forces are providing -- bottles of water and food for people who won't leave -- is in opposition to what the city and state want, Honore said local officials are also giving out supplies.Honore said his troops will continue to assist New Orleans residents who refuse to leave their homes despite a mandatory evacuation order.But it was an infuriating time of challenge when government seemed unable to meet its basic compact with its citizens. After the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, an entirely new Department of Homeland Security had been created, charged with doing better the next time, whether the crisis was another terrorist attack or not. Its new plan for safeguarding the nation, unveiled just this year, clearly spelled out the need to take charge in assisting state and local governments sure to be "overwhelmed" by a cataclysmic event.Story continues below ?Ophelia is the seventh hurricane in this year?s busy Atlantic hurricane season, which began June 1 and ends Nov. 30.

Firefighters planned to roll out their trucks and other equipment in front of their firehouses.Allen declined to describe specifics of the plan to reporters, but said, "I think we know how to move forward from here." "I think it's going to be a lower number, much lower than the 10,000," said Honore. "A heck of a lot lower than that."As the names were read, weeping mourners filed down a ramp to a reflecting memorial pool at the floor of the site, which remains virtually empty four years after the attack killed 2,749 people and tore a hole in the New York skyline. Families filled the water with red, orange and yellow roses, some shaking as they inscribed dedications on the wooden edge of the pool.Many relatives looked to the clear, bright morning sky as they spoke to the brothers and sisters they lost. Several held up photos of their loved ones.Federal Emergency Management Agency chief Michael Brown, who had been leading the relief effort, was recalled to Washington on Thursday night by Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff. Story continues below ?He emphasized that officials still do not know how many people died in the storm and flooding that ravaged New Orleans.As of Sunday morning, the official death toll in Louisiana was 154. Officials in five states put the overall total of dead at 383 The number, Honore said, "came out at a very emotional time, with not a lot of facts, and I think from talking to the city officials and the communicating with the parish presidents, I think intuitively we were saying, that number will be much lower.""There are a lot of people trying to help these parishes. You've got FEMA coming in, you've got the National Guard coming in, and Department of Defense people on the ground here with tremendous capabilities," Allen said.?They are saying they don?t want anyone to even touch the water,? Kathy Carroll, 37, of Wilmington, said after abandoning an attempt to body surf in the waves. ?Now I know how a flounder feels. I was getting tossed all over the place.?Hurricane Katrina had barreled into the Gulf of Mexico, and Mayfield's latest forecast had it smashing into New Orleans as a Category 4 or 5 storm Monday morning. Maestri already had 10,000 body bags in his parish, in case he ever got a call like this.Two light beams inspired by the twin towers were to shoot skyward Sunday night in an echo of the towers' silhouette. The "Tribute in Light" will fade away at dawn on Monday."Mom and Dad ache for you every minute," Linda Giammona-Julian said to her brother, Vincent Giammona, one of 343 firefighters killed. "We love you and we miss you; til we meet again."Story continues below ?A front approaching from the west could push the storm away from the coast but the likelihood of that was uncertain, he said.On Saturday, Bush told a radio audience that Americans will come together and make the region "more vibrant than ever."
