For non NOLA farkers who unfortunately have to rely on the WAY overblown national news (OMG... its going to hit on the anniversary of Katrina!  Katrina.  Katrina.  Katrina.  Katrina.  Katrina.  Katrina!)...
 
NOLA should be safe.  Power outtages are our main concern, which is to say not a major concern.
 
The low-lying parishes outside the re-built levee system are a concern.  But those people are bad asses who've been dealing with this for centuries, and know what they're doing.
 
Still, wanted to have a thread where NOLA farkers could have a little back and forth*.
 
*pun intended.

They need the rain. You can almost walk across the Mississippi in some points it's so low.

Isaac is a category 1, correct? What's that like, a light sprinkling compared to Cat 5 Katrina?

We can already feel the wind picking up in East MS. Good luck, New Orleans! Be safe!

AdolfOliverPanties: Isaac is a category 1, correct? What's that like, a light sprinkling compared to Cat 5 Katrina?


The CAT system is a bit complicated.  Or better yet, too simple.  It means winds of 75-ish MPH with possible gusts in the 90 MPH range.
 
But its a storm... so while a 90 MPH gust may do nothing for someone, a 75 MPH wind may cause pretty bad damage for someone else.
 
Also note there is near zero correlation between Isaac and Katrina.
 
Wind speeds aside, Katrina hit New Orleans on the west side of the storm, which is the safer side.  And caused minimal damage until the levees broke.  Had the levees not broke, we wouldn't be talking about Katrina today at all.
 
Now, Isaac is hitting New Orleans on the east side of the storm, which is worse.  But its a Cat1, which hopefully means minimal damage anyway.
 
After all that... it comes down to "we'll see, drink up!"

AdolfOliverPanties: Cat 5 Katrina



Also note that Katrina was only a CAT5 in the gulf before landfall (even that's up for debate).  It hit as a CAT3, and didn't even hit New Orleans directly at all.
 
Not getting on ya... the national media still refers to Katrina as a "CAT5" from time to time.

Oh right, Mobile too. I used to live in Mobile, so I know from experience that they're usually fine when hurricanes sweep through, but still.

I'm here in Biloxi, Mississippi. It's been mostly humid, with the wind picking up off and on. But the rain just kicked in and the winds are picking up. Nothing too crazy yet.

Bob Breck- the oldest and therefore most trustworthy weather guy- seems to think we are going to get LOTS of rain as the storm seems to be slowing. We just got home with ice after hanging at a bar for a bit. It feels like this one will be ok. We may be grilling everything that's in our freezer now in preparation to lose power

Drinky time!  Drinking game ideas?

Turn on any national coverage, and drink every time someone mentions Katrina. Drink five if they actually mention the storm this actually resembles (Gustav).
 
2012-08-28 05:47:48 PM
Drinking game: Someone in the office said if you took a shot every time someone in the media says "hunker down," you'd probably wind up at University Hospital in three hours.

The cities of Bay St. Louis, Gulfport, and Biloxi, MS, at the very least, would like a word.

I doubt we'd have talked about those places even if the levies held. Devastated seaside towns don't really get talked about.

I would argue that a hurricane that killed 238 people just in Mississippi and rivaled Camille in damage would be notable enough to not be forgotten.

Live from Picayune. Wife's up at our Assisted Living in Henleyfield, running it with a skeleton crew. We told the families to evacuate their loved ones or get charged $150 a day extra, but few did. Stuck here at home with lazy 28-year old stepson and two lazy Shih Tzus. Kinda boring so far. Expect it will get more interesting.
