No link - CNN news coverage. I think they are going for 'hardiest award' type reporting. In Biloxi small trees are starting to bend, even the reporters are stuttering.

Per Sheppard Smith on FOX, power is out to most of New Orleans and per emergency radios, the pump stations have stopped working. It's getting bad now.... but not as bad as it is in Biloxi, MS

7:24 a.m.: Superdome Leak Gets Worse
The leak at the Superdome is getting worse. It's only happening in one part of the stadium. There are about 10,000 people inside, and they are remaining calm. They're being moved from the plaza area to the concrete-reinforced area. WDSU reporter Ed Reams

7:20 a.m.: Superdome Leaking
There are reports of leaks at the Superdome. People are being moved from their seats, and officials are using flashlights to find out what's causing the problems. It's unclear if the roof has been compromised, but strange noises are also being heard. -- WDSU reporter Ed Reams

A huge chunk of the superdome roof has blown off. They have moved the people to the mezanine area. I would be freaking out. They are saying the building should hold though

I was in contact with Mizar just now
He is concerned about flooding, streets are flooded
Says the house is holding up well to the winds, his neighbors lost their fence, "something" across the street blew (i didn't hear what the something is)
He is well for now and sounds positive

Sources say 1/12 of roof off. CNN reporting massive chunks missing. People huddling together.

They are moving people to the other side of the dome. They still have two hours before the worst of it hits them.



"I can see daylight straight up from inside the Superdome," Reams reported.

National Guard troops moved people to the other side of the dome. Others were moving beneath the concrete-reinforced terrace level.

I hope everyone stays safe, and they don't panic.

Update from Mizar

4 trees down on his street, at least 2 on neighboring houses and empty lots, one port-a-potty at a construction site near house has blown off to somewhere. 1-2 feet of water in the streets, but house not breached yet. He is confident they will be fine.

It looks like the 'Atlantis 2' doomsday scenario for New Orleans isn't going to happen... as the eye slipped to the east of the city at the last minute... but, now, we have to worry about looting. Remember that the city is mostly evacuated and what remained, to be frank (and unfortunately mean-sounding) is a population that might be tempted to loot for reasons of personal economics.

Martial law is definitely about to be declared.

BTW, though NO might have survived, does anyone hanve any info on the banks to the south and east of the city. Many of those towns are probably finished.

Any more updates on the Superdome status???

When I first heard about the idea of it as a shelter, I must admit a doomsday "made for TV movie" scenario was certainly the first thing that came to mind....and then I read about 6' sections of the roof being blown off, holes in the roof, rain coming in, etc. (and this was all before the worst of it hit!)....

At this point (as the eye seems to have moved inland and broken up a bit) I'm more worried about civil order in the southern/eastern parts of LA and how those people in the Superdome will react if they're told that they can't leave the stadium right away.

Here's wind:

And radar data:

It looks like winds of 127mph are still hitting the MS/LA border reasonably far inland.

Appears to be some flooding in NO.

www.cnn.com...

Nagin said the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans, on the east side of the city, was under five to six feet of rising water after three pumps failed.

Authorities in Gulfport told CNN that 10 feet of water cover downtown streets.

"There is intense damage," said CNN's Gary Tuchman from Gulfport. "We are watching the dismantling of a beautiful town."

Just hope the final damage isn't too severe.

Senator Walter Boasso of St. Bernard Parish says there is 12 feet of water in most of the parish, up to the second floor in many homes.

Reports of 3-4 feet of water in Lakeview.

Apartment building on Wright Avenue in Terrytown has collapsed with people inside, according to Jefferson Parish Sheriff Harry Lee. Rescue crews have not been able to get to the scene as of 9:30 a.m.

Karen Swensen says there is 3 feet of water downtown near the Hyatt. She reports several office windows coming out whole from buildings.


New Orleans escaped the worse, but Biloxi and Gulfport are getting slammed.

Did you guys hear the MSNBC interview with the Louisiana senator just now???

He stated in that Lafourche, St. Bernard and I believe he said St. Mary parishes are devastated. They had reports of families in single and two story houses where the entire family had migrated to the attics to get away from the rising water, and now those houses are completely under water!

Oh this is so very, very terrible.
