I wonder what the HAARP/Yakuza mafia crowd will say if Rita returns to Gulf, restrengthens, and hits again...

TY Harry, trying to pick out the most relevant ones as they come in.
Here's a good page for news photos for ya: gallery.phillyburbs.com...



A fire burns in downtown Galveston, Texas as Hurricane Rita approaches the coast Friday, Sept. 23, 2005. As the storm approached, at least three buildings caught fire in the city's historic Strand District of nightclubs, shops and restaurants. It was unclear what caused the blaze, but a fallen electrical pole was lying on one of the buildings. High winds whipped the flames from structure to structure.


A firefighter walks past a fire at a strip mall fire Saturday, Sept. 24, 2005 in Pasadena, Texas. Firefighters had to battle high winds as Hurricane Rita made landfall on the Texas gulf coast.

djohnsto77, That would for sure give them a good thread.

They are leaning that way with the projected path. Just talked about it on Fox News.

Even if it doesn't make it all the way into the Gulf to restrengthen, it could go down and sit over NO and dump its 25 inches of rain there.

Regenmacher, Heres a few more I found I thought I would share with all.











There are Tornados popping up in several areas. Just heard on Fox.

Looks like Fox has a little higher resolution of the AP-pool photos.


I have yet to find a good site for news photos before they are cropped down...free that is.

Good work Harry, Regen, djohnston, Indy (and countless others) and every other member for creating and maintaining a great thread. I have a feeling we're going to have a few more of these severe hurricane threads before the seasons up.

Same thoughts from me to all of you. Look forward to more like this in the future.

YW. Danger Mouse....


Doesn't look much on the horizon at this time, but here's some notes:

A SURFACE 1009 MB EASTERN ATLANTIC OCEAN LOW PRESSURE CENTER IS NEAR 12N32W MOVING WEST 10 KT. THE TROPICAL WAVE HAS MOVED WESTWARD...ALONG 35W/36W SOUTH OF 20N. SCATTERED MODERATE
SHOWERS TO ISOLATED STRONG THUNDERSTORMS FROM 13N TO 17N BETWEEN 27W AND 35W. There are no signs of organization at this time. However, this low has some potential for slow development as it moves westward.

AN ATLANTIC OCEAN 1005 MB LOW PRESSURE CENTER IS NEAR 31N62W. THIS LOW CENTER IS THE REMNANT OF T.D. PHILIPPE. A FEW OTHER CYCLONIC CIRCULATION CENTERS ARE MOVING AROUND THE AREA FROM 27N TO 35N BETWEEN 55W AND 69W. THIS SYSTEM IS PART OF A BIGGER DEEP LAYER TROUGH...WHICH RUNS FROM THE ATLANTIC OCEAN THROUGH 35N65W TO 29N67W TO THE WINDWARD PASSAGE...AND INTO THE CARIBBEAN SEA NEAR 17N76W. There are no signs of organization at this time. However, there this some potential for slow tropical or sub-tropical development.

Personally, I think he is holding that Scott Toilet paper too dangerously close to the water.

Made it back into Corpus this morning. Very little traffic from Slidell, but NO gas stations open until I hit 77 in Victoria. I-10 was clear all the way to Port Charles where I was routed to I-210 loop. No warning signs, just a big barricade across I-10. Then clear again to Houston.

Drove through strong winds between Lafayette and Port Charles. Lots of trees down but moved over to the shoulder. Cops at every exit through Beaumont. This was the darkest trip I have ever made through this area. It felt surreal. Saw a few semis on their sides in the median and some upside down cars.

Cat happy to be home.

66 hours with no electricity. Just got it back!

No damage for me. I am approximately 60 miles east of Lake Charles. It did get scary at times. The damage to the west of me is devestating.

Please take time to think about the people who lost everything and have to start over. One thing the nation will see is the peope of Louisiana's resilency.

Glad you have electricity now and that you have no damage
Have you been to any of the devestated areas?

Just looked up the top threads of the year. This one is a little personal to me. I live in Lake Charles. Amazingly, my trailer stood the test of time and wind.

Things still aren't the same here. Nothing is open during it's regular hours. There is still damage. I didn't realize things would have been this screwed up from the storm, but the rebuilding process is much longer than I anticipated.

The only thing I am upset about during the whole thing was the coverage. You'd swear that Rita hit New Orleans, Galveston and Houston. I guess they closed down all travel to Lake Charles before the turn happened.

Anywho...
