Quote: Why did they do a Hurricane watch for such a small area? You'd think it would extend all the way to like Destin, FL or something.
I suspect they did that because of evacuation difficulties with the NO area.
From the 11am discussion: "THE NEW FORECAST TRACK AND WIND RADII REQUIRE A HURRICANE WATCH FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHEASTERN LOUISIANA AT THIS TIME...INCLUDING METROPOLITAN NEW ORLEANS. THIS WATCH WILL LIKELY NEED TO BE EXTENDED ALONG THE COAST LATER TODAY OR TONIGHT."
