Former President George H.W. Bush wrapped up a tour of the hurricane-devastated Gulf Coast on Sunday with a helicopter trip over parts of Texas and Louisiana, saying the damage reminded him of last year's Asian tsunami. Bush's weekend tour of the region concluded with a visit to hard-hit Cameron, Louisiana, where, he said, the path of destruction resembled that left by the tsunami. "The devastation is similar, but when you know a town, know the area, it's different," he said after riding in the open back of a large military cargo truck. "It's made a profound impact on me.”
