Not only will the tourism & casino employees suffer, but the state of Miss. will suffer lots of lost revenue, which isn't good with a budget that's already in a lot of trouble.

I wonder when we are going to get a live shot of one of these reporters getting plastered by flying debris?

They are sure asking for it...

Oh, when I went to bed, I thought they said they'd be staying at the Dome. Must have been some problem. The weather woman on Fox yesterday was so worried about the roof of the Dome, maybe that made Fox rethink where Goldblatt would stay.

Thanks for these threads. Gotta go get dressed and go to work. 3 new employees begin work today. Don't know if we can stay all day if the inland hurricane warning is accurate. Police say roads will be closed if sustained winds get to 60mph.

The east side of the storm that is blowing on shore is currently 165 MPH relative to the ground, 150 MPH from circular motion and 15 miles from the northward movement of the storm. Fact. Likewise, the west side of the storm that is blowing off shore has a ground speed of 135 MPH, 150 MPH - 15 MPH. Again, fact. Steve didn't make it up.

I worry about Shep speaking a little too soon. He seemed much too calm.

At 6:30 the power is still on, there's no flooding and the Shep is standing in the middle of the street and the winds don't even seem that bad yet.

And with them talking about the hurricane further weakening and turning east it looks like New Orleans will probably miss the worst of it. What a break!

Drank too many Hurricanes

I think you're right about Shep being way too optimistic.

NOAA's IR loop still shows the eye, a little wobbly maybe, but still there, and it only now just made landfall east of Grand Isle.

FNC reports the NHC has informed them that the hurricane has just made landfall East of Grand Isle.

It isn't likely an "error".

It is likely true.

The storm surge is expected to be 20 to 30 feet. That doesn't include wave action. That's the average height of the water.

just woke help me please

Yes, I'm afraid so -- the dreaded path for the worst storm surge. Will likely pass right over or to the east of the Big Not-so-Easy.

Pressure up slightly, winds slightly less, downgraded to a Cat 4.

Eyewall making landfall on the outer banks to the south of NO.

What is the storm surge? Wouldn't any waves have already got there by now?

I saw that report too.

Could be the same hotel chain.

Things like this bring out the best and worse in people.

If the eye passes east, you have the danger of Lake Ponchatrain flooding the city. If it passes west you have the stronger winds. It's gonna be bad either way.

Where are you getting your information?!

It's still a Cat 4 and the eye is going to brush NO. This is horrible for that area.

What if the eye moves east? Is the danger the same? I don't want to have a false sense of security, either.

From what has been described as the 'worse case scenario' for flooding, winds blowing east to west push water into Lake Ponchatrain. Lake fills to top of levees. That is happening right now and has been happening for about an hour or two. Then as hurricane passes north of Lake, back side of hurricane has northeast to southeast or north to south winds which force water to flow over levees. We wanted it to land west of New Orleans. Like the last one that spared the city catastrophic flooding. The only change now is a slight jog to east. That still does not prevent catastrophic flooding. Only lessens the severity.

well, predictions yesterday were that a move to the east would first cause the water to pile into the lake, then as the storm moved north, the north to south winds on the west side of the storm would shove the water from the lake into NO. I'm not sure if that scenario is "called off" now?
