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.

Hahaha, I took one look at that LSU interview and said "no, thanks."

I kept following Jim Cantore on WC as he had to leave the parking lot, followed by cell phone or land-line reports that the parking lot had flooded over the tops of SUVs, then mentions of the building getting barricaded, et cetera . . . Jim wasn't a happy camper toward the end before I dozed off.
