Hurricane Katrina

Jonathan and I were talking a little about hurricane Katrina and New Orleans tonight.
When they first began to talk about it, I just assumed that it would be small and all would die down in the news.
Well I was wrong obviously. Lets keep New Orleans in our prayers tonight/day and hope that this is not as bad is it can be.

Here is some of the news I have read:
"Ladies and gentlemen, I wish I had better news for you but we are facing a storm that most of us have feared," Nagin told a news conference after reading a mandatory evacuation order. "This is a threat that we've never faced before."

Katrina had grown into a Category Five hurricane on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale, with catastrophic winds of 284km/h, by 11am EDT on Sunday (0100 AEST Monday).

oh dear I got hit by the spam patrol, I don't really mind too much bc I easily delete them but this time they advertised porn sites, which to me is pretty unfair.
Oh well...keep praying for New Orleans

I thought the same thing at first--that it would not be a big storm. We'll have to keep everyone in the path of Katrina in our prayers.

Please pray for the Mississippi and Alabama coasts. This hurricane looks like it is doing the same thing Camille did in 1969. That hurricane devastated Mississippi, which is a relatively poor state to start with.
