The scenario is being set for a massive disaster if Hurricane Katrina continues on it's currently projected path into New Orleans as Category 4 or higher storm. Residents in low lying areas in several parishes of Louisiana are under mandatory evacuations and many parishes are under voluntary evacuations. While many are taking heed to the warning, by fleeing the city, many others are seemingly unaware of the monster storm heading their way. At least two interstates in Louisiana and Mississippi were changed into Northbound only traffic to alleviate the traffic jam for evacuees. While New Orleans is in the center of the "cone of error", all residents along the Gulf Coast need to watch this storm closely and prepare now.

"Ladies and gentlemen, this is not a test. This is the real deal," New Orleans Mayor C. Ray Nagin said at a news conference. "Board up your homes, make sure you have enough medicine, make sure the car has enough gas. Do all things you normally do for a hurricane but treat this one differently because it is pointed towards New Orleans."

Katrina was a Category 3 storm with 115 mph sustained wind Saturday, but the National Hurricane Center said it was likely to gain force over the Gulf of Mexico, where the surface water temperature was as high as 90 degrees — high-octane fuel for hurricanes. It could become a Category 4 monster with wind of at least 131 mph before reaching land early Monday.




Please visit the link provided for the complete story.


A mandatory evacuation for the city of New Orleans has not been issued as of yet, but the Mayor of the city, does plan on making that decision tomorrow morning and using the Superdome as an evacuation center. It is frightening to hear the head of the National Hurricane Center, Max Mayfield say that this hurricane and inevitable landfall is "scary". Do not underestimate the power of hurricanes, regardless of where the center of this storm hits, the entire Gulf region will be feeling effects of Katrina. Power outages are likely and will be widespread. Be prepared for the worst and hope for the best. Good Luck New Orleans.

Most models are in agreement of the general direction of where Katrina is heading, if you live anywhere along that area, please leave, a Category 4 or higher is not a storm to ride out.

WARNING: To Everyone living well inland, in states such as Oklahoma, Arkansas, Georgia, The Carolinas, Tenessee and Kentucky, please keep your eye on Katrina. You will be affected. Be prepared to stay indoors, have your disaster kit ready. Torrential downpours will likely cause trees to uproot and widespread power outages. You don't have to be anywhere near the eye to feel the effects of a hurricane. You also have time to prepare and stock up on essentials or start that disaster kit you have always meant to start.

they say if New Orleans recieved a direct hit from a major storm the french quarter could be under 20 feet of water. I went to New Orleans in 78 for Mati Gras...I seem to recall I had a good time...I remember arriving and I remember leaving but that is about it but I wasn't robbed, shot or caught any funny diseases...of course a pocket full of pot and acid helped alot LOL...be that as it may, after San Fransisco, Los Angles and New York, it is the only throughly decandant place America has (Washington D.C. doesn't count, it aint decandant, just corrupt) and it would be a pity to lose it.

Yes please, do heed this warning Katrina caused a lot of damage as a storm in south Florida, I can't imagine what it will do as a category 3 or 4 hurricane.

Its official, its a cat 4 now, with winds of 145 mph. And still over 300 miles til it reaches land fall, and the warmest waters are still ahead. I think this will be the biggest hurricane in my life time, as far as the destruction She will cause.

Last info I heard is sustained winds now at 150 MPH, I can't see how this couldn't be a Cat 5 by the time it hits. I just hope people in New Orleans and adjacent areas are taking it seriously...according to what I've seen on TV, they aren't yet, preparing more for hurricane parties than an actual killer hurricane

I wish you luck and Godspeed...and as for my comments about New Orleans, they were meant affectionatly, America needs places like New Orleans, we take ourselves way too seriously as it is.

Again all my prayers go out to the people of New Orleans and Louisana...and if a blessing does come out of all this, maybe the storm will drown all those Asian termites.
