Katrina and blogs

It seems silly to ask this: the Asian tsunami was very well covered on blogs, to the point that it became an example of how blogs can provide reporting thats useful and orthogonal to conventional journalism. People blogged about missing people, about generating volunteers, donations, etc. The SEA-EAT blog was the best place to know about what was happening by the minute. How come Katrina isnt being blogged enough about from people closer to it? A more personal account is always more vivid and compelling.
