I have just been watching Fox news, and from what was said this is the "Big
One", even though the waves are expected to be as high as 40feet there are
surfers in the area, would you believe it! they must be mad.
I do hope that Ann and Ken are going to be alright, has anyone heard from them?
I am going to be watching through the night here, I do hope that everyone will be
safe from this hurricane.
I have just watched as they are taking people that live on the lower levels into the
stadium, they say that the stadium can take winds of 130mph, so lets hope that it
stands up to the high winds that are expected.

Some of the structures New Orleans were only built to withstand the winds from a catagory 2 storm (I believe that is the code for the area) Katrina is now a catagory 5 and moving over warmer waters where she may strenghten even more. It will make it one of the strongest storms ever recorded.
All our thoughts are with everyone in Katrina's path especially our members.
Please stay safe!
