Another "not sure if this is in the right place" post. I just got off the phone with my mom, who works for the city of Miramar in Broward County, FL. They have a case there of a family of five overcome by fumes from a generator that was positioned outside their home. She mentioned something about the fumes being able to travel along the electric line attached the generator... I'm not sure how it works, etc. but bottom line, please share with your friends and family that even if you have a generator outside your home, be vigilant and super cautious.

Thanks, and best wishes to all affected.

Not sure Margie as I depend on those with so much knowledge to help me understand . I just heard on the weather channel that the whole state of Alabama is under a tornado watch. By what I see the path of Katrina is to travel toward NW Alabama where my children both live.

Yep I just looked at the computer models and see that NW Alabama is the path

If you have a generator, buy a carbon monoxide detector. They are cheap.

(And like the previous poster, I apologize if this post is off-topic; but carbon monoxide poisoning, although uncommon, does happen more often after storms than at other times, and with a detector it is for the most part preventable.)

I know its a great convienience to have a generator in a time like this, but sometimes i wonder if the risk is worth it. My neighbour has one, its loud and i can smell the gas from my house. To me its a very scary machine to have, granted i just went four days without power and no where to go because of flooding because of Katrina.

On a side note, i remember earlier in the season, we were voting on the hurricane names that scare us this season, who would have guessed a sweet innocent name like Katrina would turn out to be like this.

On another side note, I will never use the term "minimal hurricane again". After what i went through this weekend, Katrina really slapped us around here in South Miami Dade County. One lesson learnt, when there is a hurricane warning, take it very seriously.

I saw this forecast for the buoy offshore of Biloxi, MS. It was predicting a 70 foot wave height (I hope I saw that correctly, actually I hope the model was very wrong).

Katrina made landfall a little further west than Camille, the larger size of the eye probably allowed for the surge to be higher in Gulfport.





So they both hit the loop current in about the same place, about the same time of year, and the intensity increases were along a similar timeframe.

I read earlier today or last night in this thread that one of the bouys in the gulf was damaged (in Ivan?) and has been malfunctioning since then. Not sure if that's the one, though. Can anyone confirm?

They are showing some arial shots on the news...a neighborhood in LA...water to the roofs...unbelievable & I'm afraid it will only be worse after they're able to access more areas.

Someone mentioned "Rick on a boat in Mobile" earlier. He posted i think yesterday and said he was off the boat and 30 miles inland with some friends. I hope he is ok too. What about the man from Hattiesburg who posts on here; any word from him?

I just checked the mods.......Danny is from Hattiesburg....i pray that he is ok....he is a good man.

Don't have a link...watching Fox News...guess they could be on their website...politics aside they have been doing decent coverage as far as pictures, etc..they had about 7 reporters scattered all along the coast from LA to AL.

I sure hope it is wrong. Mobile is flooded and they are just hoping it doesn't continue to rise. I heard at least 10 ft of water downtown, can anyone confirm that?

Hey folks from Atlanta...some updates from here...

Major tornadic outbreak in Eastern suburbs of Atlanta as well as on the west side of the state.

Reports are coming in of at least 7 different touchdowns and a number of warnings have been posted for the affected area. Polk & Carroll Counties are the ones under the gun and according to WSB-TV there was a two car wreck in Carroll County during the Tornado Warning in which one person was killed.

I thought it was over 15?

Look at the photo at the top of this topic. You will not believe your eyes.

Luki, your best bet is www.pensacolanewsjournal.com

I doubt he'll be working on Blue Angel until Wednesday is my best guess.

Sorry if it's off topic but in refrence to the Blue Angel thing - I would stay home anyways and let things cool down for a few days before i went into any area effected by the Hurricane. Have him stay home and enjoy a few days R&R with you!!
