Quick notes from conference call hosted by the FCC today about
urgently coordinating resources and personnel from internet/wireless
service providers to get communications networks up and running in in
gulf states.

Lack of communications systems has been identified as a critical issue
holding back aid, missing persons, law enforcement, etc. in crisis

FCC personnel are working throughout the weekend to coordinate these
efforts with private industry, with wireless technology groups, FEMA,
and state governments in Mississippi, Louisiana, etc.
