K, where are you located? I have a good friend in N'awlins, and I can't get a hold of her. I'm assuming she's on her way out of town...

Please be safe and evacuate if need-be. We'll all keep good thoughts for you and all in this part of the country

Major US weather disasters tend to make the news here. I'm confused, if you live in a state that gets 3 hurricanes a year, why continue living there?

And then the places that get tornadoes all the time, Christ, I'd have emigrated yonks ago!

Oh, the places that get blizzards, shit yeah!

(Australia tends to be a comparatively meteorologically benign country)

New Orleans just issued a mandatory evacuation.

I hope all the poor and homeless are able to get to shelter at the Super Dome.

The winds are now up to 175 mph.

I was just reading about this earlier and how devestating it could be. I hope that the impact isnt as great as it's feared to be. I was there a year ago in October and it's such a unique city with a feel and history unlike the rest of the US that it's sad to even imagine that some of that could be destroyed if they get a direct hit.

I was reading about that earlier and they said that it's been hard for people to find ways to get out of the city etc due to unavailable transportation. I think they said something about maybe running buses to pick people up to get them there. I guess it's been hard for tourists to get out of the city as well...tough to get flights or even to the airport.

They had the mayor of New Orleans on MSNBC and he said that tourists who can't get out are "evacuating vertically" - going to the top floors of high rise hotels. He said he thinks they should be okay there , but all the hotels are full right now.

President is going to talk about it in 15 minutes.

Man, that is a well defined eye.

This does not look good for all who may be affected by this storm. Praying for all who may be in harm's way.
