Mark Austin is live in New Orleans tonight, although due to another storm there were a few problems with the live links.

Mark Austin was set to present live from the scene, but ended up only doing one link to a report from Harry Smith. Mark will be back with a 'live' at 10:30pm



Robert Moore and Bill Neely are also in the U.S.

And for SKY News we have correspondents and FOX or CBS reporters.



Wonder if Kay or Jeremy will be deployed across there for this VERY VERY big story. Mark Austin has again proven how fantastic a journalist he is. His piece tonight was very good.

Greg was in America today, which I think is a first.



Why aren't they using Ian Woods, because I don't think Greg gives the right effect for this type of story.

Yes, Martin was there at 6.30 too.



Maybe Alastair's on his way to the affected area?
