Hurricane Rita: A local perspective

New Orleans's Times-Picayune provided excellent coverage of Hurricane Katrina (and it continues to cover Hurricane Rita), and I thought it might be useful to have a look at some other Gulf Coast publications for good local news. Here's a preliminary list:

-- The Galveston County Daily News

-- The Beaumont Enterprise

-- The Port Arthur News

-- The Lafayette Daily Advertiser

In addition, the Lake Charles American Press is running a Rita-related blog — see here.

And, of course, there's the Houston Chronicle, which in addition to its regular news coverage is running two Rita-related blogs — one by its own journalists, one by citizen journalists.

Please let me know if there are other good sources for local news in the area. Most of my posts rely heavily on major news outlets like CNN and The New York Times, but I think that some local perspective might be in order.
