Family in Mobile is OK

My wife's sister and family in Mobile, Alabama have returned from the shelter safe and sound, and their house is still intact after Hurricane Katrina.  They have no electricity, and it looks like it might be out for quite a while, but after last year's hurricanes they bought a generator, so they at least have a refrigerator and one fan (hardly enough in a muggy 105 degree heat).  They describe trees down and structural damage on some university buildings, but "better than being in Mississippi or Louisiana right now".
