Hi All,

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.
Elly.

Yes, I do also wish for everyone's safety, this really is big and New Orleans is 25 feet below sea level (a bowl) and authorities are speculating a 28 foot storm surge that would leave the city under 25 or so feet of water what makes it worse is the only way to remove the water is for it to be pumped out and with loss of electricity people are guessing it would take up to 60 days for the water to be pumped out.

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!

Here's hoping and praying for the solid perfume members and all of the people affected by Katrina's wrath.

The North Shore Animal League and Noah's Wish are rescuing the pets left behind during Hurricane Katrina. They have to get the animals before they drink the water, which is toxic and will kill them. The images of these bewildered pets are heartbreaking. If you want to help, you can donate at their website:
