You all be Carefull

We are locked and loaded for Katrina. Stacy is getting the last bits, and we are about to go and pick up the yard for loose objects.

Be carefull and say a prayer for New Orleans... they are essentially screwed.

Re: You all be Carefull

A lot of people are going to be majorly affected by this one.

Good luck to anyone in that area.

Re: You all be Carefull

New Orleans is going to be devestated

They are saying 100 Billion dollars worth of damage is expected.

Will be the single most destructive storm in the entire history of the United States

Re: You all be Carefull

if the worst case senario happens, new orleans wont be liveable for quite some time.

they are saying it will be the most destructive b/c new orleans is like a bowl, meaning that its below sea level with the mississippi river and lake ponchitrain on both sides of it. there is a levee that is on both sides that keep the bodies of water from coming in. well, with the expected rain and storm surges, it looks as it will overflow the levees and run down through new orleans. now given how bad it is dictates how much damage will be caused. hurricane andrew which hit in '92 was just as powerful as this one and yes, new orleans did have some damages, but it was cleaned up. the only difference between that storm and this one is that hurricane katrina is bigger (but just as strong) and the eye is gonna hit closer to new orleans than hurricane andrew did.

imo, i think that new orleans will have damages, but i dont think the figures will get as high as 100 billion........at least i hope not.

i really do feel sorry for those residents of new orleans b/c the damages that some will come back to is not gonna be good.

That is the most defined eye I have ever witnessed in a Hurricane.

Simply incredible.

NO is going to be DEVESTATED. It will take YEARS for them to recover from a direct hit cat 5

They're saying we're gonna get 75 mph sustained winds here with up to 10 inches of rain. I'm thinking my car is going up on jack stands and under a cover starting around lunch tomorrow just for safety reasons.

**** that, drill holes into the concrete slab of your house and strap that sucker down, put as many matress pads(thich cloth fabric ****) and a really good car cover it. then build a exoskeleton out of steel rebarb around the car and line it with as much sheetmetal as you can.

and id take earthquakes and cali emissions over the southEAST'S incessant(and almost 12 month now) hurricane season.

new orleans is gonna get ****ed hard. mardi gras is gonna suck next year for them. itll be held on rafts and rooftops next time around.

and according to the weather channel, top winds of 160mph

discussing things on another board, guys in N.O. are saying that some area's are supposed to get gusts of 216mph, and sustained winds of 176mph, a few guys have shipped the family out, and are staying with the house

the pump system will be useless, there is supposed to be 3-4 stories of water, between rain and the surge...theyre basically screwed

Re: You all be Carefull

Starting to get that NE edge now, 10-15 sustained winds at the moment. I'm ready for this thing to hit, but it looks like tonight is when it's gonna come over here. BTW it's made it's 2nd landfall, looking to make the 3rd on the coast of Mississippi here in the next few hours.

Re: You all be Carefull

Well here at Maxwell AFB (Montgomery, AL) we are starting to feel the effects of Katrina. Winds kicking around 35MPH. Not sure what the gusts are. Surprised rain hasn't started in yet. Full overcast. All our aircraft have been evaced to Oklahoma City (at least I think they all went to Tinker. I know some did) The two that are broke have been put in the hangers. Third hanger has been utilized for storage of AGE...Im just waiting for us to get the evac order too. Probably not go anywhere, but I will have a day or two off of work. In true fashion probably go to a hurricane party. Ill have pics that I have been taking throughout the day posted tonight...I believe it is suppose to be over us early AM tomorrow.

Re: You all be Carefull

Pretty crazy, last night I got a call from a friend who just moved back here from N.O. He asked if I could help a couple of guys he worked with down there at clearchannel. Of course I said yes, took them almost 16 hours to get up here to Hot Springs. They got to my house around 5:30 this morning, and when I left for work at about 8:30 they were still up watching the news. I went home for lunch to see how they were doing, they said their family is ok but everything they have is pretty much destoyed. So tonight is going out to watch some football and beer drinking.
