Pray For New Orleans Tonight

This is going to be the worst hurricane to hit land probably since Camille back in 1969 they're saying. New Orleans is in line for direct hit by a category five hurricane. The whole town is going to get leveled. This is going to be like watching a head on car collision in real time. I guess we know where Geraldo Rivera will be for the next few days, LOL. In all seriousness though, this really bums me out. I have never visited the city for Mardi Gras before and now it looks like I might not get to for a long time. The city itself is below sea level. It is only protected by a series of levees. The news is that engineers have already told city planners that they will not be able to hold the water back from this type of storm surge. The city is going to be under twenty feet of water in two days. This is so sad. Drudge has all the relevant hurricane links up at his site.
