This article just showed up on Yahoo News, and at about the same time our
local TV newscast here in the SF Bay Area carried the same information:


One of rock 'n' roll's chief architects has been rescued from the rubble of
New Orleans. 

Fats Domino, who had been unaccounted for in the wake of Hurricane Katrina,
was plucked from the flooded city by a rescue boat. 

His daughter, Karen Domino White, who lives in New Jersey, identified her
father in a picture taken Monday night by a New Orleans Times-Picayune
photographer. The singer is seen being helped from a boat by an emergency

There was no word on where he was taken. There was also no word on the
whereabouts of family members that had been with him before the storm hit.
