Katrina as a Cat 5



Katrina remains a Category 3 hurricane but it is continuing to strengthen as it's central pressure falls. Hurricane hunter aircraft report that the eye is closed but still somewhat ragged. The hurricane should track across a deep and warm layer of water over the central Gulf; and with little to no upper-level wind shear across the entire Gulf, intensification will occur. Katrina should become a Category 4 hurricane Sunday and could even reach Category 5 intensity before Monday morning.

God help anyone not evacuated.

She has a visible eye once again. If she holds the good eye for a period of time I'd expect a big jump in strength.

I'm in a higher part of town. Not projected to get any flooding. On that artivle that was posted" If blah hit NO" I was in an area that had no flooding and was above sealevel. I don't live in the city.

I;m verry worried about the coast line. IF we get another hit on this scale soon I can Garuentee that south Liousiana will be nonexistiant.

It is expected shortly that NWS will declare Katrina as a catagory 4 storm with winds 145mph, gusting over 170mph in a new advisory.

According to the weather channel.

NWS Special Statement

Only another 10mph sustained and she'll be a CAT 5

If you want to talk about the worst part of this storm for New Orleans then the following estimate from OceanWeather.com best illustrates the problem.



Based on their midnight model run they are estimating the current wave heights at nearly 40 feet. This of course is in addition to a storm surge. If this storm hit New Orleans as it you'd be looking at probably a 15' surge + 35' to 40' waves. The top of the waves would be 50'+ over the normal tide level. This will easily go over any levys or sea walls. If this storm were to strengthen to category 5 strength you'd be looking at a 20' surge and waves of some 60'. Doesn't take rocket science to understand that New Orleans may never recover from a hit like that. I would think a storm of this size or even the current cat 4 storm would have a chance at destroying the levy system that protects the city.

This is the most incredible satellite image I think I have ever seen of a storm. Look at the swirl feature in the eye. This should give you an idea how bad this thing is.

No more posting! Leave now. I just saw the cam of traffic on WWLTV.com Looks light. If your mayor declares mandatory evac. the road will be slammed. Do not wait until then. Most people are asleep now....go now!

Anyone heading to the Atlanta Area, U2U me.

As long as it doesn't delay the process for you would you mind snapping a few evacuation pics? Don't hold up your evac for this. Do this only if you have a few minutes to spare.

TO those of you in New Orleans LEAVE ASAP!!!! I do'nt care if you have to kill your life savings you won't survive this if its a direct hit. Ive ran from hurricanes before and I know the feeling all to well. This year ive invested in a camera so im holding ground if one comes this way. I don't reccomend it to any of you.


The hurricane can suck the air out of your house and kill you. Its a very horrible death. This is if you dont have the house collapse on top of you. To those of you sitting it through your in my prayers. Everyone stay safe.

If your coming to the Tampa area send me a pm

I feel compelled to echo the sentiments above.
If you are in New Orleans, LEAVE NOW!!!!
The Weather Channel has declared Katrina a cat 4 and are almost sure it will be a 5 before hitting land. That will be catastrophic.
Please, leave. Our prayers will be with you.

GO NOW. Some people at Fox news are already reporting a Hurricane 5 and thousands of people are starting to flee out of the city. For those of you who don't have to flee look at this link, which says there are car jams from people trying to leave. Some contradictions as others have said no one is really leaving... For god's sake people stop waiting until it is too late.



By Sunday morning, queues had begun forming on the main roads leading out of the city and hotels as far as 150 miles (240km) north reported that they were fully booked.
