    yeh they'll need to be bailed out
    the relief agencies and the fed will send money

    I'll send my old pots and pans

    They'll need them. The electrical grid will be down and they don't expect to have enough diesel fuel to run the pumps enough to pump out all 25' of water. Basically, downtown New Orleans is screwed. Their moving a LOT of people to the superdome. Hope it holds up. As of 12:00 am Katrina 175 mph winds and around cat 5.5

    Unhappy

    DAMN! My parents and sister are screwed, they live in Picyune and Slidel. Something tells me that my parents might as well just keep on going down the interstate to here, because their aint going to be much to live in back there for a while. That city is screwd big time,.. I was just there in July and I can't imagin a CAT 5 hitting them. This is going to be ugly, for sure.

    I forgot about your parents and your recent trip down there John. I hope they are evacuating and I hope the storm misses them.

    Sad thing is, it is going to hit someone.

    Yes an impressive looking photo for sure. Now imagine being hidden in a photo like that for 36 hours.

    The Dude at Command Central at the National Huirrican Center who commentates for MSNBC, that dorky looking older dude, who is doing play by play for this storm is saying this could be one of the biggest in recent history, saying it's not done intensifying. The data was coming in as he was talking and they had to chenge the windspeeds to 180 from 170.

    It's going to hit something, and it is going to be devastation. Wow.

    There also saying that it could effect oil prices from east of the Missisipi and propel gas over $3.50 a gallon.

    What structure is hurricane proof?

    I can't imagine.

    I fear for all in its path.

    All the news channels on cable are now saying this will be the biggest to ever hit the United States on record. Garunteed desstruction. There clocking gusts up to 190 miles an hour with 175 to 180 sustatined winds.

    That's pretty intense, Mitch was worse sustained at 190, then it hit Central America and killed 20,000+

    It looks like it's going to hit east of New Orleans the head west right across New Orleans, then back to the gulf then Texas.

    Update.

    Now there clocking gusts up to 211 MPH. The dude from the National Hurricane Center is saying that, it is intensifying and there is no way to predict it leveling off. One thing he said was, when your barometric pressure of the system is lower, the more intense it will become, well, Katrina has surpassed all low pressure records by this morning and she keeps dropping and keeps intensifying.
