    Default Hurricane Isaac Thread......(be safe those in its path)

    Tropical Storm Isaac is about to become a hurricane (possibly within the next few hours) and seems to be heading in a direction that could spell a very high storm surge along with very heavy rain for New Orleans and surrounding areas. Then very likely areas that have been hit hard by the drought could see some very heavy rain, thunderstorms and tornados within the next several days.
    Its now expected to be a category 2 storm with about 100 mph winds with some higher gusts possible.

    Be safe to those that will be affected by this storm, its not Katrina but not to be taken lightly either.

    Isaac is predicted to hit New Orleans on the 7 yr anniversary of Katrina's landfall. Hard to believe it's been 7 years already.

    I have family in NOLA and I love Biloxi. Hope everything turns out for the best case scenario. Except by the superdome. Flood it. Take Drew Brees out to sea.

    I am watching Issac with interest and apprehension in the relative safety of far away New Zealand. Be safe, everyone down there.

    Ugh, that pic!! Wish I could remember what in hell I was talking about!!


    Anywhoos, as of right now, I'm staying put in Shreveport! Go to work Wednesday and I'll know what plans, if any, are! This is a big storm, but it doesn't seem to be able to get its act together! And, even though most of the news outlets are trying to sensationalize all of it, ( Katrina, New Orleans, anniversary....Blah blah blah), this isn't Katrina!
    Is there a danger? Sure! But, the biggest threat is the rain and the storm surge moving up the Mississippi river. They show this storm moving very very slow across southeast Louisiana! But, since Kat, new pumps are in, the levee walls have been beefed up, and contra-flow for the interstate system has been set up. Remember, New Orleans levee failures didn't happen until about 5 hours after Katrina left town. Other than some wind damage, most of New Orleans faired well for a Cat 3 storm. East of NOLA, as in Gulfport and Biloxi, that was where Katrina left her calling card.

    But, all that being said, this is mother nature we are talking about and along with a city that sits below sea level! Anything and everything is on the table regarding New Orleans. No one can say for sure what the outcome is gonna be, but I feel it's not gonna be a repeat of 7 years ago!

    Praying for my peeps down there and hoping for the best!

    HH<----- would actually give ANYTHING to be in the French quarter when this thing blows through! Bars remained open before, during and after Katrina stopped by!!!! No power, no problem! They have drinks flowing---------

    My brother and his family are in Dallas and my sister and her family are in Jackson. So apparently they're talking about a boat load of rain and wind.

    This little bit of info just came out from the hurricane center, 10 min ago. This ain't good......

    Strong wording from NHC in regards to Isaac's storm surge

    [UPDATE: The National Weather Service New Orleans office is definitely concerned too. They're labeling this as a potential "extreme" surge flooding event across much of southeastern Louisiana with surge levels of 9 feet or more, which is defined as:

    Life threatening flooding possible in areas outside hurricane protection levees and in areas around Lakes Pontchartrain and Maurepas. Sections of west Jefferson, east St Charles and lower Lafourche hurricane protection levees could be over topped. Areas outside of hurricane protection levees will be severely inundated. People not heeding evacuation orders in single family, one or two story homes could face certain death. Many residences of average construction directly on the coast will be destroyed. Widespread and devastating personal property damage is likely elsewhere. Vehicles left behind will likely be swept away. Numerous roads will be swamped. Some may be washed away by the water. Entire flood prone coastal communities will be cutoff, perhaps for more than a week. Water levels may exceed 9 feet or more behind over topped levees. Significant storm surge flooding will move well inland especially along bays and bayous. Coastal residents in multi story facilities risk being cutoff for a week or more.

    Hope everyone is fairing well. That parish that has the levee breach sure looks aweful right now with water up to the roof tops.
    Sounds like other flooding is occuring now with such heavy, persistent rain bands with this slow moving storm.
    Now iit seems the tornados are breaking out as it moves more inland.

    Be safe everyone.
