Hopefully you have been able to move out of harm's way, as you get through this know that our prayers are with you.

As some people know, I grew up in the far east. Storms of this magnitude (called Typhoons) are more common in the Pacific, but tropical cyclones are trouble no matter what you call them. I made a little fun about this storm as it came through Miami, but Katrina is no longer a temporary incovenience. Our friends in Lousiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and western Florida are in for a rough few days.

My brother lives in Pensacola, FL - Gulf Breeze to be exact. He said he already has storm surge in his back yard. The Pensacola News Journal is reporting Ivan-like storm surge is to be expected. That would put at least 3' of water in my brother's home. He just left the Army with 12 years of service and we moved him to FL back on May 1, 2005. It's been a roller coaster ride ever since. He's fed up and ready to move home to Arkansas now.

John,

I spent the weekend at my parents house over on the Mississippi gulf coast. Luckily, I got up early this morning and headed back to NW Florida. All I saw on I10 were Louisiana plates...and that's a good thing. I think most everyone in New Orleans got the hell out.

Had I waited later to leave, it could have turned a 2 hour drive into a 6 hour drive. I think it has turned into complete madness all over the LA, MS, and AL gulf coasts. Things are not so bad here in the Panhandle where I'm at, except for the dwindling supply of gas. But, I'm about 40 miles inland...so I have "some" distance from the gulf.

When I was younger I remember my parents and many others telling me about Hurricane Camille that hit back in 1969. Lucky for me, I was not born then, so I missed it. Those that remember it (a cat 5 with over 200mph winds) take hurricanes very seriously.

If this thing makes landfall as a cat 5, one can only imagine the devastation that it will cause [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img].

Anyway, thought I would share that bit of reporting with y'all [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope this SOB weakens before making landfall!

Allen

they should build houses that act like boats... you know, with a hull underneath. when the water comes up three feet, the house--while moored so it don't float away--floats up three feet. maybe i could patent this? oh, wait, i think they already have things they call houseboats.

seriously, tho, i wish your brother the best. hope it all turns out okay.

Please be safe. I have an awful feeling in my stomach watching this sucker brew.

Avoid stupid people that want to "experience" the storm... run and hide and tell the stories of those stupid people as you pass the cemetery.

Those seeking safe shelter... come on down, we'll make room.

I've been through a few hurricanes. As long as you stay indoors, they're fun--unless you live right on the beach. HURRICANE PARTY!!! Pensacola is where I'm hoping to move to in about 3 years. As soon as I get my degree-I'm there.

yeah indoors is real safe if the place doesnt come down on you from the wind and you are not 10-13 feet below sea level when the levee holding it back breaks and lets a possibly 20 foot storm surge come through.

Havent been that many Cat 5 hurricanes to party thru. Otherwise I would agree with you.

12 years Fla,
12 years Calif,

Florida= a few hurricanes and a tornado a block down that wiped out over 100 units when I was 7-8 years old.
Calif= several quakes including the Northridge quake.

This one hits with 175 mph winds there is going to be hell to pay.
