over the next couple of weeks.

From the National Weather Service:

Quote
KATRINA IS FORECAST TO MOVE ASHORE AS CATEGORY FIVE HURRICANE... SIMILAR IN STRENGTH TO HURRICANE CAMILLE IN 1969. WINDS ASSOCIATED CATEGORY 4 AND CATEGORY 5 HURRICANE CAN TOTALLY DESTROY MOBILE HOMES...AND CAUSE MAJOR DAMAGE TO EVEN WELL CONSTRUCTED BUILDINGS. HIGHER WIND SPEEDS ARE LIKELY TO BE EXPERIENCED ON UPPER FLOORS OF
TALL BUILDINGS CAUSING DAMAGE.


On Fox News they had a statement about power being out for weeks due to xformers and transmission lines being down.

Hope our brother members around the gulf take care down there, y'all!

My prayers and thoughts go out to those in the path of Katrina !
Lets all take a moment and pray for their safety, and give thanks for ours !

Sorry Doug, I didn't realize you had already posted something on Katrina and NOLA +/or Missip. I just posted another one.
