Hurricane Katrina

I worked for the National Weather Service at the Slidell, LA office from 1992 to 1994 (Slidell is just northeast of New Orleans). So I have some friends down in harms way of Katrina right now. This hurricane is not taking the worst case scenario path from what I can see. Still going to cause widespread damage and people will lose their lives. Not a good situation.

The radar picture to the right is from the Slidell radar. Looks like my comrades are keeping the radar going as of 8:43 AM this morning. I am sure they are on generator power by now. The radar image also indicates that the worst part of the hurricane is yet to come… probably over the next few hours.

Update: KLIX radar’s last image came in around 900 AM. Could be the actual radar failing or just a communications failure. Probably both. Some reports of New Orleans levee breaching have come in. This is bad.
