Default Pray for the Gulf Coast

WOW.. Hurricane Katrina Up to 175MPH. Categry 5. They are saying this could easily pass up Camille which set the record for the larget hurricane ever to hit the US. It's due to hit Louisianna head on, Which is BELOW Sea Level. Storm surge with a Cat 5, and this is LARGER than that, is going to be 20 to 25 feet, Probably higher. SUSTAINED winds at 175, Gusts over 200.

Bad thing is, This thing is still getting bigger and larger quickly.

I heard that the whole New Orleans was evacuated. Must look so spooky when there is a city without a single person in there.
