Category 5 Katrina Winds to 175MPH - TD#13 Forms East of Caribbean Islands
      Sun Aug 28 2005 10:56 AM

5pm Update
Winds with Katrina have fallen slightly, from 150kt/172.5mph to 145kt/166.75mph. This in no way diminishes the threat associated with the storm and, given the peak in flight level winds this morning, more likely represents a leveling off of intensity for the time being.

4:00pm Update
Tropical Depression #13 has formed in the Atlantic east of the islands. More to come later about that.

2:30pm Update
Recon reports that the pressure has fallen again, this time to 902mb. Winds still remain near 150kt/175mph at the surface, however, given maximum flight level winds remaining steady around 160kt. Nevertheless, Katrina continues to maintain itself as a strong category 5 hurricane as it approaches landall, now expected within 24hr.




(We and Skeetobite are looking for feedback on maps, let us know here)

Original Update
The crew from the latest recon flight states "Maximum Flight Level Winds Were 166 KTS OUTBOUND NE Quadrant at 1422Z. Perfect stadium effect and textboox radar depiction of eyewall."



The chat link is open for the event.

10:50AM
Hurricane Katrina is now up to 175MPH Maximum Sustained winds.

If you are near the coast and in the cone for Katrina YOU SHOULD NOT BE LOOKING AT THIS PAGE - prepare and evacuate if necessary

10:30AM
Winds with Katrina are now estimated at 175mph with gusts well over 200mph. Mayor Nugin of New Orleans has issued the city's first ever mandatory full scale evacution. If you are along the coast in any of the hurricane warning areas, I'd recommend evacuation, follow the recommendations of local officials in regards to these. If you do not evacuate, you are seriously endangering your life -- there's no other way to put it right now.



SUNDAY - 8:30AM UPDATE
With central pressure now at 908MB and sustained winds of 160MPH, Katrina is now a powerful Category V Hurricane. As with any strong hurricane, fluctuations in intensity are likely over the next 24 hours as the storm moves northwest and north toward the Louisiana/Mississippi border area, but the bottom line is that Katrina is a dangerous hurricane that will cause extensive to catastrophic damage when she makes landfall along the north central Gulf coast.



Significant track changes are less likely as the window of time for those changes narrows - the best advise is to monitor the latest track forecasts from NHC. Tropical storm or hurricane force winds will cover a large area of the northern Gulf coast (probably all of it), and near the center of the storm hurricane force winds will extend well inland from the coast for at least 12 to 18 hours after landfall. The storm is expected to move due north and eventually north northeast after landfall. Residents in the Hurricane Warning area are urged to take immediate protective action.
