This is probably the most huh? video I've seen of the storm.

Water is bad for vehicles, Apparently didn't get the memo.

But really, I'm starting to have that feeling that the damage was worse in some parts than we know about right now. God bless everyone there. Frank, let us know!

luki,

I live in Pensacola. We're doing ok here. We have a strong band going through right now off the gulf from the tail end of Katrina but it's about to taper off. There are many around town without power. I'm one of the lucky ones that has it. We've had some gusts at Hurricane force, but since we just had Dennis last month and Ivan last year, there's really not much left to get blown away except debris from the other 2 Hurricanes. Those living by the water had it worse here. The surge was pretty strong here but we're

I'm sure it will be days before we know the full impact of this storm, last I heard on FOX news they expect the damages possibly to exceed Andrew

the yahoo.com homepage has some good photos I don't know how to post a link but if you go to the homepage you will see it

those looking to post pictures, I'd recommend using imageshack http://www.imageshack.us/

There you can upload an image and it will give you codes to drop it in the boards, (use the forum 1 code it lists)



Just cut and paste that into your, post, like above, and there you go!

Later on I'll gather them all up for a big gallery. We welcome your pics, ones you have taken yourself, or found elsewhere. (Try to give credit)

Here's a site with lots of photos of the storm. They are all copyright since they sell to newspapers and such, so you can't post copies of them, but they are available over at their site:

Also, we have a few good satellite photos of the storm from yesterday:
NASA TERRA/AQUA from MODIS - 1915Z today: http://rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/gallery/?2005241-0829/Katrina.A2005241.1915.2km.jpg
NASA TERRA/AQUA from MODIS - 1700Z yesterday: http://rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/gallery/?2005240-0828/Katrina.A2005240.1700.2km.jpg
NASA GOES 12 from APOD: http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/image/0508/katrina_goes12_big.jpg

Note on the MODIS images - click the "Alternate Pixel Size" links at the top to zoom in - you can zoom WAY in, but the 250m is a huge file.

Travel Update...Anyone trying to go west from the North Florida area can not do so at this time. The I-10 bridge in Pensacola will be closed until it is inspected for damage. This will not happen until Tuesday. Also the other bridges around Pensacola are still closed so if you know of anyone trying to head back to Mobile or MS..tell them to stay put. Also the I-10 Bayway in Mobile is closed, and the US 98 bridge in Mobile , as you probably saw, was hit by a wayward oil rig so there is no way across Mobile bay.

Erin 95 , Opal 95, Ivan 04, Dennis 05, and that's enough!!!!

Disturbing reports coming in on CNN about people stranded on top of houses along Lake Pontratrain. A CNN reporter is on scene, and there are only two rescue boats onsite. Reporter talked with some of the people who have been rescued already, and apparently the water came up suddenly, and after the worst of the storm was over.

Our Governor just spoke and said they have already rescued 80 or so people from roof-tops so far and that they have, I believe she said, 10 or so boats going out now for search and rescue to the areas that are flooded. She said they put the boats in right there on I-10 because it was so flooded. The areas they were headed to in NO had 10 feet of water, she said.

She said to expect several casualties but the numbers were not known at this time and won't be until they can get out to all the homes that are under water.

Just to give non-southern folks an idea of this storm. I live 30 miles west of Little Rock, Arkansas. We have had a cloud cover non stop for 2 days. Today our high was 77--absolutely unheard of here in August--and a slow drizzle started about 7:30am. I'm talking 2 states north of landfall.
ps the depth of these states aren't like the carolinas...or pennsylvania..or....
