I appreciate the appropriate perspective provided above by MikeC - who clearly knows of what he speaks - as well as CaneTracker's post. There's just no basis for comparing this system to Katrina beyond the dates and, very roughly, the track.
These things are fascinating to follow, and from a strictly scientific curiosity perspective, it's tempting to fall into the trap of wanting to see these things evolve into something extraordinary. But you can't have been through one (or many more) of these things and wish them on anyone. I realize that might not have been the intent of some of the above posts, but the attempts to read more drama than necessary into this situation doesn't read well.
This site is a tremendous resource and though I'm a rare contributor, I would ask that contributors stick to information and avoid hyperbole.
