NEW ORLEANS - National Guard troops stand ready, batteries and water bottles are selling briskly, and one small-town mayor has spent a sleepless night worrying. The New Orleans area is skittishly watching as a storm marches across the Caribbean on the eve of Hurricane Katrina's third anniversary.
With forecasters warning that a strengthening Gustav could slam into the Gulf Coast as a major hurricane, a New Orleans still recovering from Hurricane Katrina's devastating hit drew up evacuation.

If something like this happens, I hope that people finally learn that you cant build a city on the water and under sea level. At the risk of sounding cold and heartless, they get whats coming to them.

"I was watching a show on discover the other day showin a manhattan size chunk falling off the northern polar caps, and they said that piece falling off made it likely that a massive shelf would seperate in the next few years, and they estimated the dramatic effects of this much ice breaking away and changing the thermal currents would raise the sea levels by up to 40' worldwide over the next decade....that would put N.O. at 60' under sea level!!! aaaaagggghhhh!!!"
If you have a glass of water with ice cubes in it and the ice melts, the level of water in your cup does not get any higher. The same amount of water that was on earth a million years ago is still here.
