Hurricane Rita: In search of local news

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 newspapers for good local news. Here’s a preliminary list:

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 us know if there are other good sources for local news in the area. I find that many of my own posts — I won’t speak for Joe or my fellow co-bloggers — rely heavily on major news outlets like CNN and The New York Times, but I think that some local perspective might be in order.
