Hurricane Katrina Hits New Orleans, Biloxi/Gulfport. [Aug. 29th, 2005|11:00 am]
[Tags|, ]

The GOES satellite images are just the beginning.

The reports start to collect from the various news sources. Apparently, the Superdome, which is the shelter for the New Orleans residents who could not leave, is crumbling in a part of the roof, and water floods the building. Also, the levees that shelter the city, much of it below sea level, broke. One broke near or in the French Quarter.

The Weather Channel seems to have the least irrational coverage.

Re: Lady Crescent, please live

I'm sad inside over the damage, since I've walked through there and enjoyed the city, as well as Biloxi and Gulfport.

I've walked that beach in Mississippi, and the area by the Gulf is beautiful. Mobile, Alabama, was also affected with massive flooding in the lower-level downtown area.

New Orleans holds a lot of early history in the buildings and landmarks of the United States.

It appears that some of it will be lost, as the latest report I noticed mentions that 30,000 homes were lost.

There are blast holes in the high-rise buildings in New Orleans. As if the city were home to a small-scale war.

It could have been far worse for the city, but this is quite enough, as Katrina has retained its general cell, and Birmingham and Atlanta are next.
