Katrina Update

Whereas our county had not issued mandatory evacuation orders for low lying areas, they have now decided to do so and are urging everyone on the island and near the beaches to evacuate.

Originally they were expecting a 2 ft storm surge but now... who knows.

Looking at the weather sites I've been saying for hours I expected something like Ivan's storm surge.

NOLA has a mandatory evacuation of the entire city.  Early this morning they were urging everyone to go to the Superdome which was opened as a shelter, now they want everyone out.  The entire city could well be flooded. What a loss that would be.


Please keep us informed - I am very worried about you, Jim, your daughter and the kids.
