There's Nothing There You Really Want to see, Anyway

According to Press Democrat news services (sorry, I can't find a link), although many members of the Mississippi Naitonal Guard's 155th Brigade Combat Team, including "virtually all of the roughly 300 soldiers" in B and C companies, posted in the "Triangle of Death," have had their homes either destroyed or severely damaged by Hurricane Katrina, only about 80 members of the Mississippi guard have been granted emergency leave. The others have to stay in Iraq, because there are "too few U.S. troops in Iraq to spare them."

There's a nice overall assessment of the way Bush Administration policies have left the US prepared to deal with crises.
