I mentioned this to Phil earlier. I guess it's safe now to mention it here. Camille was forecast to hit between Ft Walton Beach and St Mark's FL. The watch was posted 36 hours in advance from Biloxi to St Marks. The warning went up 3 hours after the watch!, from Ft Walton Bch to St Mark's. At 5 am the next day, 18 hours before landfall, the warnings were extended west to cover Biloxi. At 9 am, four hours after the first warning extension, a second extension to New Orleans and Grand Isle,LA was issued. Camille struck about 25 miles west of Biloxi at 11pm, on Sunday Aug 17th. Contrary to TWC, she had an extremely low pressure also. Measured by Navy Recon to be 26.61" or 901mb, with a max flt level wind of 190mph. *They are totally unpredictable!! Get ready now and pray you don't have to leave. If you do have to leave, you are ready to go right then.*
