Galveston: Why 40,000 Ignored Hurricane Ike “Certain Death” Warning- Death toll maybe be a lot higher than Hurricane Katrina

By GottaLaff

One of our many astute Anonymi pointed me to this one:

The following is from an email sent to me by a good friend in Nacogdoches whose buddy has been over Galveston – names have been edited out to protect the folks those who relayed the report. Also relayed from this guy and others: persons going into the restricted area are apparently being patted down and cameras are being confiscated, by Army and Coast Guard personnel.

Okay…I’ve got some news on this front. Take it for what it’s worth, but the guy I got it from is someone I trust to raise my children… He’s never once lied to me…ever. And we’re close.He’s in a pretty high-up supervisory position for a refinery down on the coast.

His refinery has some equipment and lines in and around Galveston county, and before they were to bring them back on line he and his crew had to inspect the place for damage and potential hazards.So they were given permission….after a background check….to helicopter in and inspect, which meant coming in over Galveston.

I kid you not when I say that he told me they saw AT LEAST 1500 bodies in trees scattered about Galveston. They also saw a lot in various ditches and marshes, esp. on the north side of East Galv. Bay, east side of Trinity Bay, and in the marshes between I-45 and Seabrook/Clear Lake/Deer Park.

It explains why they’re not letting the media anywhere close to the Island except in limited sectors nd we’re not hearing anything from or about the people who survived and those who stayed behind. It’s like 20,000 people never existed….where are they? Where’d they go? What are their names? Nothing….

  1. Hurricane Ike death toll shall rise

  2. Hurricane Ike death toll maybe in the thousands. Is there a government cover-up? Why is there a Media blackout?
