Our thoughts and best wishes go out to all of our LiveJournal family affected by Hurricane Katrina. To help take one of the worries off the minds of our users in the affected areas, we've extended any paid accounts held by anyone who lives in the areas by one month, to prevent anyone from losing time during disruptions, outages, and other problems.

If you know of anyone in the affected areas who didn't receive an email from us this afternoon, please have them contact us at accounts@livejournal.com so we can help them out. Our system let us identify most of the accounts affected, but not all.

That's a nice gesture. I'm curious about what you consider an "affected area" since I personally received no email that I am aware of.

Somewhere above this comment in the post rahaeli said they got a list of ZIP codes of "affected areas" from the post office and that is what they used to determine who got the emails.

You guys are so great.

I thought about this the other night... I had a feeling you guys might give all those people a little 'something'. I'm sure they all appreciate it, some of them don't have much anymore.

Great thing to do! Just make sure you DON'T extend mine accidentally, just because I live in Louisiana. Up here in northeast Louisiana, believe it or not, all we got was a couple of drops of rain and a light breeze. This area is almost in drought conditions.

People in southeast Louisiana or southern Mississippi though, could be disrupted longer than just a month... just sayin'...

We went with the list of ZIP codes from the post office, yes, not just everyone from that area.

I'm not from that area, but I just wanted to applaud you for adding on one month time for those in the area :)

The thought's kinda cool but I think it'll take more than a single month to get the majority of things up and running. =/ Still at least it might make it easier for some people to keep in touch.

Yeah. On the news here in Baton Rouge (and I guess they're saying it other places, too, but I'm not there so I wouldn't know) they're saying it's gonna be 80+ days just to get the water out of New Orleans.
