What your encountering are probly feeder bands off the storms northern front.
No, The storm intself is above land.
The eye is not on land, It will make land later tonight.
If you were half as smart as you are trying to look you would know that the eye itself is not the storm. The eye is the centermost point that meteorologists use to pinpoint the location of a hurricane. While the eye is not on land, The storm can be, It is simple common sense.
The eyewall is the strongest part of the storm, The eye is the calmest part of the storm. The eyewall and eye are not going to cross my path, I am in the path of the forward right quadrant of Katrina.
If you would like proof that this storm is "on land" Please direct your browser to this Webpage. It is not a live feed, But it is a picture of Pensacola Beach. I do not know of the interval at which it refreshes but I would guess frequant, as that is a picture shown a few minutes ago on television.
And also, Look at http://www.cnn.com/
It shows you right there the storm is indeed on land
Please think before you speak
