      Friends,

      I asked our colleagues in Mobile how they fared during the hurricane.
      This
      is a response from George Ewert concerning the Museum of Mobile.

      Hello,

      <snip>

      The Museum of Mobile is now closed for the indefinite future. The
      Southern
      Market / Old City Hall was flooded on the first floor during the
      hurricane.
      Water lever was not high but it brought in a lot of river mud and
      containments. There was no structural damage to the building or the
      other
      museum locations and storage facilities.

      Crews are taking out the carpet now and we are awaiting word from the
      City
      of Mobile as to how and when to proceed next with the recovery effort.
      The
      first information we have is that FEMA and the City will share the
      expense
      of bringing the museum back into operation.

      Staff will return to work on Tuesday, September 6 and begin damage
      assessment. We were very lucky given what could have happened.
