Hopefully the reporters will not take pics of the bodies. You know they're coming with that one.

David Diaz looks at the area where he and his brother used to live in the Sadler Apartments on the waterfront in Biloxi, Mississippi, August 29, 2005. The pile of rubble and empty foundations are what is left of 30 or more apartments and more than 100 of the St. Charles Condominiums. Hurricane Katrina ripped into the U.S. Gulf Coast on Monday, stranding people on rooftops as it pummeled the historic jazz city New Orleans with 100 mph (160 kph) winds and swamped Mississippi resort towns and lowlands with a crushing surge of seawater.

That's an oil rig?

Or at least, it WAS an oil rig. BTW, thanks for this thread. Seems to me that, give the potential destruction that could have occurred, we "dodged a bullet" this time. Perhaps all the prayers were answered...

We went through some tornado evacuations in Oklahoma, but even the Big One in 1999 wasn't anything like this kind of scale. It's really mind-boggling.

On the bright side the rig didn't hit either of the main suspension towers; those are where most of the time and effort of construction is. Replacing a section of suspended roadbed is (relatively) simple and fast, at least.

At least it wasn't a repeat of Hurricane Android (Andrew)obliterating that one town.
But it was still plenty devastating enough.

That pic of the oil rig is PRICELESS! Why does it make me laugh!? I guess becuz I live in MO. If the water recedes will that help remove it? Tow it back out with a tug? And the top half is MISSING? Cool.

Those flags should have been taken down. It is wrong to leave a flag to flap in a strong wind like that.

Will they cite the people that stayed and did not evacuate? I have heard of that being done before.

Homestead, FL. It was adjacent to the Air Force Base, which was abandoned after the hurricane.

I remember right after Isabelle, we all filtered out of our homes in shock at the devastation in our neighborhood. Power out, trees down, roofs smashed, night falling around us and the heat and humidity closing in. We were in shock, silent, acquainting ourselves with the new world that had been hurled upon us in the space of a few hours.

Isabelle - Category 1

I pray for strength for these people.

I'm positive you are right . . . I've just been worried about her.

Funny how we can worry about our FR friends, isn't it? We've never even seen each other—never heard each other's voices. But I am always glad to see you posting, am happy for you when you have good news (city water in '06! Woohoo!!!), and will pray as if for my own family when bad weather or whatever comes your way . . . Y'all are just special to me . . .

Admittedly I haven't seen that many images of this one.

I see that I was told it was Homestead Florida that was erased by Hurricane Android.

Any preliminary info on how Katy stacks up against Android so far?
(I was out for most of the day. Neat pic of the submarine ambulance.)

yes very much so.

couple of things happened that really saved New Orleans.

One, the Hurricane slowed down. This gave the land masses near the Hurricane more time to affect it, and weaken it.

Two, it wobbled East. Had this thing been 10-15 miles closer to New Orleans at landfall, the entire city might be flooded, not just the East side of the city

Three, it is moving faster than it was. Had this storm stayed at a slow motion for more than it did, the torrential rains, along with the winds would have caused even more flooding.
