For as wide of an impact area as it is, 7,000 people across 9 states seems like a pretty low number. There were 9000 people stuck in the Superdome alone when Katrina hit NOLA, with the number swelling to 15-20k in the immediate aftermath.

I am sure if the power companies had a reasonable estimate they could give one. Ameren around here didn't have one when the storms went through here. I had 1 large generator, a POTS line and my DSL up and running. Watching movies was about the only things that really kept us sane the whole time.
