The Hurricane Katrina death toll through September 10 is 383.
This number includes 211 in Mississippi and 154 in Louisiana.
Door-to-door searches in New Orleans continue, and many homes have
not been searched yet, so it is impossible to know what the final
toll will be.
But the death toll is now thought to be significantly below
the high estimate of 10,000 given earlier by Ray Nagin, the Mayor of New Orleans.
