Drones Arrive In New Orleans

Five unmanned aerial vehicles are headed to NOLA to search for survivors. The 8-foot long Silver Fox drones are equipped with thermal cameras that will help searchers find Katrina survivors. The UAVs were obtained from a private company—the feds still do not have their act together enough to deploy something like this, according to Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Curt Weldon, vice chairman of the House Armed Services and Homeland Security Committees.
