I sold my home to my son and his fiance. It's right on the broward county line west of Boca proper. Good thing my wife made sure we replaced the roof with better wind resitant shingles after the damage we had last year. Problem is he may be in the northern part of the eye after landfall.

Still, Imran is right. Cat1? how boring. Watch out for lots and lots of rain though. Flat land with full canals means heavy flooding.

I expect some great video from you FL folks.

For Heath and all of our other Floridian members of DV Info Net, here's hoping that Katrina and the waves leave you alone, and that you're all walking on sunshine (and don't it feel good)!

We're golden, no lost power--it went southwest of us and did some serious damage to Ft. Lauderdale, Miami and the Keys. It's a cat 2 now, heading for where Ivan hit last year, and that one storm (forget the name) that hit last month. Alabama/Florida panhandle. Might be a cat 4 by then.

Dang, no break for us!

Ya, I made it through this one just fine, but Katrina is now a cat 3 in the gulf. For the state as a whole, it would have been better if it had hit us higher the first time a scrubbed off a little more energy. It went so low that it didn't hit as much land in the way. We could have taken it ok, now it is just more powerful.

Guess we just can't win, eh.

Good luck to all.

Mike

All the models now have her coming ashore near the mouth of the Mississippi. One of the models that NOAA refers to is forecasting it to be a Category 5. It just went to Catergory 3 overnight.

Now our Louisiana members have to be on the lookout.

If a cat 5 hit New Orleans, it would be bad...Very bad...

Yes, CNN just did a story about what a CAT 5 might do to New Orleans. Scary. 6 months under water, no power, no way to dispose of sewage...
bad, bad, bad.

From what I've been seeing on the weather channel, lots of areas of Europe are having severe flooding themselves. Torrential rains and all of it coming down off the mountains. Seams just as bad as the effects we get from Hurricanes, but happening a lot quicker.

Seems to be either too dry or too wet.

That was freaky how the Katrina turned south and hit the Keys though. I guess it picked up enough moisture from the everglades to keep going.

Like I said, it would have been better in general if it had hit higher in Florida the first time through, and lost a lot of power.

I love New Orleans, I hope I get to go there again!

News reports say it's gonna hit New Orleans. Judging by wind speed, I believe it's at a cat 4 because of the very warm water in the Gulf. I really hope it would sputter out, but no luck.

Be safe people and get out if you can.

I live just north of Lake Charles, in the Southwestern part of Louisiana, so we won't get much wind or rain here. But, the people in the eastern part of the state are gonna get hammered - bad.
I-10 westbound is bumper to bumper right now and we are typically a 4 hour drive from New Orleans. The traffic must be horrible farther to the east.
