I just saw a short clip from MSNBC I think of someone about 4mi inland at Biloxi - rain, 60mph sust wind, but it was dark out so obviously not current.

FNC has a subtitle saying "part of Superdome roof in New Orleans blown off".

And they're saying 10,000 people are in there. Last night someone on this site who said they worked with FEMA said there were 36-some-odd-thousand people there. Who is right?

The news caster in there now didn't say this. He said "Lots of leaks coming from everywhere" and moving everyone to the end zones out of their seats.

I would not be surprised if the roof is peeling. Considering the age and number of roof repairs that have been done. The interior and interior walls will stand up. I doubt the whole roof can be ripped away. Probably lose areas here and there. That place is going to be cramped and uncomfortable. Dark, hot and crowded.

People were arguing yesterday that it the superdome could handle winds to 200mph so it is a little surprising that it came apart in what I'd guess would be cat1 or cat2 force winds. Really hoping that the baloon effect you describe doesn't materialize.

I'm actually seeing a jog or wobble to the wnw on radar now..

Phil - NBC reported a 3' x 5' section of roof had peeled off and the sky is visible.. they also said a small lightning rod on top the roof came thru and fell to the field. Someone above reported 1/12th but that has not been confirmed by an onsite reporter.. just a 3' x 5' piece. The integrity of the roof is questioned however as they still expect some heavy winds.

Seems to me quite the contrary. There have been several posts on here wondering about the integrity of the building's structure.

Watching the tv coverage yesterday, as people were lining up to get inside the SuperDome, I told my wife that I really hoped these people weren't being shepherded into a tomb. I know that most of these people had nowhere else to go. This is more than sad. More than scary.

Fox just had a report from inside the Dome by Video Phone and showed the holes, they looked like 9 foot sections (At least 2 of them)

i SAW the video (still) shot with a video camera which brian williams emailed to the station...there is definitely a HOLE in the roof...can't tell (no perspective) how large it is, but daylight is CLEARLY visible

MSNBC is showing the pics right now.

FNC is interviewing a guy who's saying that only the protective lining has damage, but clearly there are holes.

That streaming video station in Jackson just said something that I was noticing earlier...as the strongest part of the eyewall convection comes around it is going to be hitting Slidell. Also about how bad it is going to get on MS Gulf Coast from Bay St. Louis over.

You know it looks like the eye is going to be making landfall around Waveland in only about another half hour.

MSNBC is showing a visual of a 20' storm surge.. The meterologist is on a piece of equipment that keeps getting raised to the roof of the studio. And comparing the level to previous storm surges. It makes a big difference to see it visually... knowing it intellectually is one thing... SEEING it is very different...

unbelievable...
