Water surrounds the New Orleans Super Dome where, according to reports, at least 10,000 people continue to suffer with no toilets, no electricity and little food. At least two people are reported to have died in the Dome and today, another died after falling from an upper level, apparently a suicide.

Other reports indicate that fights have broken out and people are demanding to be let out even as more refugees are being brought to the shelter from surrounding areas.

On another sober note, prisoners at Orleans Parish Prison have rioted and taken hostage a prison deputy, his wife and four children who had been brought to the prison to take shelter from the storm.
