Martin Kaste filed a story from New Orleans, describing attempts by rescue workers to convince remaining residents to leave.
He is speaking to Paul Goodman, a firefighter from Georgetown, Kentucky, when he notes that forcing residents to leave isn't the only thing rescue workers are reluctant about:
Kaste: "They're also reluctant to advertise the fact that they work for the much-maligned Federal Emergency Management Agency. Goodman and his unit of firefighters are here working for the agency, but they've hidden their FEMA ID tags under their shirts."
Goodman: "They still wanted us to wear it, um, we were advised by the U.S. Marshals not to wear it."
