Re: Category 5 Katrina Winds to 175MPH

I think if you read Mr. Giella's entire post he says:

But due to the size of this tropical cyclone the damage window will extend from Morgan CIty, LA in the west to Apalachicola, FL in the east on early Monday morning 08/29/05.

He was also concerned about the impacts east of the storm in coastal AL/W FL. Someone with his credentials should not be silenced due to expressing a slightly different opinion. Most people trust the NHC as the ultimate authority.
