8-31-05 - About 200 medical patients will be airlifted today to Houston from New Orleans, where hospitals suffer power outages, fuel-deprived generators and flooding from Hurricane Katrina.
At least seven hospitals in Orleans Parish were threatened by loss of power generators and other problems.
Some hospitals are running out of fuel for generators.
As a result federal officials began the evacuations of about 2,500 patients yesterday.
Of those, about 150 veterans and their families will be taken to the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center from Ellington Field.
Andy Icken, executive vice president of Texas Medical Center, says about 20 patients will arrive at the Methodist Hospital and about 17 will arrive at Texas Children's Hospital.
