With the destruction in New Orleans, has the National D-Day Museum made it through Hurricane Katrina?

In a message on the National D-Day Museum's Web site, the museum's chairman David Voelker and president Nick Mueller said the museum, located about one mile east of the Louisiana Superdome, was not flooded and did not suffer serious damage while power and other utilities were down.

The museum also offered its buildings and parking space as a staging area for the National Guard. Published news reports have said that reporters found the museum intact after Katrina hit.

In the statement, Voelker and Mueller emphasized the importance of rebuilding the city. Updates on the museum and city's condition can be viewed at the Web site, www.ddaymuseum.org.
