Ernie the Attorney and Katrina

Elaine at Kaliliy Time passes on a connection to Ernie the Attorney who is blogging from New Orleans about his experience with Katrina. Apparently Ernie tried to evacuate the city with hundreds of thousands of others only to find it "safer" to return home. Ernie's last post came in 12:30 this morning and prompted me to take a look at the maps tracking Katrina. The word is that New Orleans could be "wiped off the map" as Katrina takes to land - frightful news, but the destruction won't stop there. Take a look here at images capturing the ferocity of the storm as of 4:00 a.m. this morning, and look here for a projection of the storm’s course, scheduled arrival, and anticipated staying power. Cause for pause.

Wow, this is one big storm! My girlfriend's relatives are situated about a half hour from New Orleans. Half of their family went to the Dome while a few stayed back at the house. Needless to say, the ones at the house are stuck there because of the massive flood that happned as a result. It is still very dangerous for them to be there right now, but it is illegal for them to leave because of the live electric wire in the water! Talk about being in a pickle! Well that is my news for the night. I wish the best for all the poeple going through the worst part of the storm right now.
