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.

It Was Worse Than I Expected from Earlier Reports.

They just played footage of the aftermath in Louisiana on ABC during the Monday Night Football game.

The north side of every high-rise, including the Hyatt near the Superdome, all of the buildings have completely blown-out windows.

The flood waters extend up to the top of a regular 1-story building. They're rescuing people from rooftops.
