Katrina Death Toll

From ABC News Reporter's Blog:

Death Toll Mounts

Two senior-level state and federal sources say that the death toll could top 6,000. Both believe that the majority of deaths — 80 to 90 percent — were caused by a slow response from FEMA and Department of Homeland Security.

In the meantime, several blogs are reporting that the press is being banned from New Orleans. I have been searching for more since it first hit Eschaton. So far, there is nothing in the MSM...
I would take it with a large amount of caution until further proof shows up...

Americablog has more... more proof would be nice. Anybody out there have anything more solid?
