No they won't. They have pick up sites in New Orleans and around the state of Louisiana and will take people to .. God knows where at this point. Every hotel, motel and room in Louisana, Mississippi, (Mobile and north) is taken.

The CEO of the company I work for was trying to find a hotel for the people who came in thursday for a company meeting. She had to invite them to stay at her house, because they couldn't find any rooms for them.
That was yesterday(Fri).

If it stays at a category 3 or more, this city, Mobile, will go under a mandatory evacuation.

they are saying it will probably gather strength and hit as cat 4. not good for the folks on the gulf..

also, just saw a news conference with mayor Nagin of NO and he said on no uncertain terms that any looters caught GO DIRECTLY TO ANGOLA PRISON no city jail and no free passes. They have at least double if not more of a police force and national guard. So they aint f**king around..

Andrew sucked. I wouldn't recommend riding out a storm over a category 3 to be quite honest. Our doors were blowing in during Andrew and my dad had to nail a piece of plywood over the door and moved all the couches in front of it to hold it all in right in the middle of the storm. And the eye was over 20 miles away from my house!

Good luck!

Got all my outdoor stuff inside. Filled up my car and stocked up on ice. It wasn't nearly as busy at the grocery as I thought it would be.
Hopefully it won't strengthen any more. I'm staying here with my kitties if it doesn't get any stronger.
Even if I leave, I have battery lights for them in case the power goes off.
Now we wait, and watch.
The clouds are moving in and the sun is in and out. Breezy but not real windy, yet.

Everyone stay safe
