According to the "live" report (audio + a few stills from a camera phone) I've seen/heard from the Superdome, the reporter is stating the actual
size of the [openings] to be in the 3' X 9' range (multiple).
Though a very good media focal point/crisis [OMG] I don't fear more for those within the facility. Even if the roof were to completely blow off,
these 9,000+ folks could easily seek shelter in the tunnels/causeways/concessions areas within the Superdome facility.
Yes . . . wet, tired, frustrated, etc., but still alive and safe from harm's way . . a sad scene to say the least.
My heart goes out to all who are in the path of ole' Mother Earth's latest spin.
I don't have any direct connections to the area (i.e. friends, relatives, etc.), but . . . DAMN I feel for
you folks in the way of Katrina?!
We'll see the remnants here by midweek (Wednesday/Thursday) with wind and heavy rains according to current projections.
For the most part, I'm glad that she had more or less downsized and changed direction just prior to making landfall, rather than earlier projections
of basically taking on more fuel [warmest waters] and increasing in power just before coming on shore. Going to bed last night with a heavy heart and
waking this a.m. to at least a somewhat less destructive possibility initially and overall.
Unfortunately, as per my prior post, due to the overall "flat" region of entry Katrina will still pack hurricane strength winds, heavy
rainfall, and spawn tornadic activity well into Kentucky, Tennessee, etc.
