    actually, New Orleans is about 12 feet BELOW sea level.

    If it hits dead on or west of New Orleans, the city will be no more. Lake Pontchatrain will flood and wash the French Quarter clean out to the Gulf of Mexico.

    I have family there. Pray for them, since some won't leave.

    We are on the western side of the state and don't really expect to much from this one thank God.

    Heck some people were still in the French Quarter drinking daquaris (sp) around 5:00 pm. They were starting to close off bridges at that time.

    There will certainly be many deaths.

    At 3:00 A.M. winds were 155 mph. It is looking like the eye will pass west of New Orleans and pass directly over Baton Rouge looking at some of the time lapse radars.

    There will be thousands killed in this storm. A lot of people will have under estimated the power behind this storm.

    I called my state senator here last night. We know another senator that has a fleet of 18 wheelers that travel nation wide. We are going to try to send water over and some other stuff. This might be something some of you could get rolling in your towns. Even if it is a small box van it will help.
