I fear for the superdome. I hope that building is ok. How many thousands of people are inside?

It seems this one is huge and hurricane season is no way near finished. It is natures stunning breathtaking force at it's full strength but so sad that people and lives are in danger.

Good luck everyone in the area....stay safe.

The Perfect Storm


can someone post updates of webcams jpeg images in the thread for those with narrow band and those that cannot access the webcams live please?

The storm has is going due north now, and it may go a little more east. While NOLA is still looking bad it may barely miss the worst of it, if so Mississippi and Alabama will get rocked hard. Now the storm is on radar, it is easier to track and we can easily see the little wobbles almost by the minute. No from west of NOLA to Pensicola is safe and hurricane conditions are certain. Exactly where the core of the worst will go is still uncertain. Remember this storm has had suprises in the past so we should expect more. All we can do is prepare for the worst and pray for the best.



EDit: So much for that easterly component. New Orleans is still in the crosshairs.

No food or water being provided in the Dome? How does that make sense.....

no food and water because it not a regular emergency shelter. It is a shelter of last resort, bring your own and hunker down.

Good luck to everyone that lives in that area, and if you can still leave the area, do it now please. Don't wait thinking the hurricane won't be so bad.

When is it supposed to make landfall again?

Hope it dousnt reach land fall untill everyone is safe in the dome, if the dome is safe. That bridge is gonna rip apart, and if they dont move faster, theyll go with it. But Im not sure of the status of the bridge, how is the trafic?

Prayers for those on ATS who are affected by this hurricane. I've heard nothing good coming out of the media regarding this. I hope the media is all wrong.

*Remembers Camille (8/17/1969) and the devestation. My family drove through 2 days after it hit. I was only 6 years old, but I still remember.

They're staying in some larger, sturdier buildings. The CNN crew were operating from hallways on the 4th floor.

They'll be well protected

That suprised me as well! There will be no where to escape to once this moves in.

It's called ratings, boys and girls.

As far as using the Superdome as a shelter, to be honest, these people are lucky the mayor authorized this. In 1998 when Hurricane Georges hit, the mayor at the time opened the Dome. Well the people were po'ed cos there was not food. In the end they stole furniture. At that time, they said the Dome would never be used again. Luckily, we have a good mayor in NO right now, who actually seems to be looking out for the best interest of his citizens. (An uncorrupt politician in LA is VERY rare.)

to Mayor Nagin!

Obviously there are many that simply cannot leave the area, for a number of reasons, and will have to enter an emergency shelter, yet as demonstrated in the video there are also many who are simply too stubborn/stupid/fill in the blank to heed the warnings.




Regarding leaving, it's a hard choice. My mother lives in NO and it took a lot for me to get her butt over to me. ( I'm north of Lake Pontchartrain in a "safe" area.) But bottom line is that there are a lot of elderly people who have not family, no car, no one to help them. If I still lived in NO, I would not be able to leave because of my four dogs. (I don't think a hotel would appreciate a 140 Rottie
) You do what you have to do and hope for the best.
